Come along with Micky, Mike & Davy as they take over the merrie olde island like she’s never been grabbed before!

The first real live Monkee (not counting Davy Jones, of course—cos he came from there in the first place) to hit England was madness’ own Micky Dolenz. He arrived at London’s Heathrow Airport on February 6 to an unexpected (because his arrival had been kept “secret”) crowd of over 300 super-enthusiastic female fans. Because the security police were caught off guard, Micky had quite a time—losing a few buttons and a piece of his hair—getting through the crowd to his waiting limousine. After a frantic but glorious battle (thoroughly enjoyed by everyone—press, fans and Monkee—except the under-staffed guards), Micky and his retinue made it to their hotel. Let’s join them there and go along with Micky—and, eventually, with Mike, Phyllis and Davy—as they take over merrie olde England like she’s never been grabbed before!
