Not exactly a Monkees fan, they’ve been around probably all my adult life so I remember the group well.

One a day now, the numbers will ALWAYS take over.

Sad news indeed, I think the monkees were americas answer to the Beatles, as I understand, they couldn’t play any instruments, but learnt how to, and became very talented musicians

His name is now Tippexed out. RIP Mike.


even Monkees eventually fall from the tree RIP

RIP Mike.

He was the same age as me, but I’m still twanging away so it’s the luck of the draw.
