BKITU: tb tibbles: They were snarked off as the "Pre-Fab Four",but during a visit to the UK in March 1967,they met up with the the Beatles during their Sgt. Pepper sessions. The Fabs were duly impressed with the Pre-Fabs.

John invited them to a party after a day of recording. The party inspired Micky's psychedelic/ragtime/scat rant "Randy Scouse Git." As Micky put it, "I was told I had a wonderful time."


Mickey absolutely killed that song when I saw them in concert. Hands down, my favorite Monkees song, and the old guy still has his chops - in fact, it was just a fun, fun concert and I can't think of a song they didn't sing. They even did a very nice tribute to Mike.

I too saw a show from that tour, at Six Flags Astroworld. I still have the program somewhere.

CSB - during their resurgence in '86/'87, I couldn't get enough of their music and tv show. My parents suggested I write a letter, which I did, as best as any 6-year old could do at the time. I don't remember how much time passed, but one day I came home to find an envelope addressed to me. Inside was an autographed picture of Davy, Micky, and Peter, with a note that read, "Dear gao81, thanks for the support!" I remember being in shock. Recently, my parents told me that before mailing my letter, my Dad had included a note of his own, telling them how much of a fan I was, etc.... I still have the picture too.

Oddly enough, Roddenberry deliberately cast Walter Koenig to be the "Davey Jones" type character on Star Trek to draw in the Tiger Beat readers to watch it, just to make the studio suits STFU about glamorizing a Rooskie on an American TV show.


The studio's idea was to make him English like a Beatle, and then Crazy Gene got the idea to make him ROSSHUN instead. I like it. They kept the moptop, though.
