I Visit with The Monkees (Part 5)

Dear TiGER BEAT Readers,

Since I spend practically all my time with the Monkees, it’s just natural that I’ve become fond of them. So many of you keep writing me asking questions that I decided to answer some of your questions this month. Regardless of what you’ve heard elsewhere, Mike is the only married Monkee. Peter does go with Leah, Cass’ sister, but they’re not married as yet. Micky’s girl’s name is Randy. They’re also not married. Davy has no steady.

The Monkees’ show is renewed for next year so you’ll be seeing it every week. The Monkees DO play their own instruments. If you don’t believe me, just go to a live concert and see for yourself.

The Monkees ARE going to make a film this spring. I don’t know what it’s all about yet, but I’ll give you the story as soon as I find out what it is.

  • Davy Jones
    Davy looks like he was thrown out in the cold ([above]), but it’s just a scene from one of the Monkees’ shows. In real life, Davy may have to find a new apartment. So many fans found out about his other one that they were gathered outside night and day.
  • Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork
    Above, Peter and Micky share a serious moment. This happens sometimes, when the boys try to work out funny bits for the shows.
  • Peter Tork
    Happy Peter is the way the photo [above] looks.
  • Peter Tork
    I think Pete looks really handsome, even with his hair combed back off his face. All the boys were in great moods and eager to get back to filming when they returned from their vacations. The set buzzed for days with each one telling the others about their trips.
  • Mike Nesmith, Davy Jones
    Being made-up is an almost natural thing with the Monkees. The very nice part is—they all look great without it! They’re really just as handsome off stage.
