Were any of the four Monkees in an accident recently and seriously hurt? Or is it just a rumor?

Bloomville, Ohio

The above letter is only one of many we’ve been receiving concerning an accident involving Micky and Davy. Some of the letter writers even heard they were dead or paralyzed for life! But don’t worry, all the Monkees are alive and well, and will continue to turn out their great show and records!

In the April edition of T.S. you included a color pic of Paul Revere and the Raiders. In this picture, was Fang holding a cigarette?

Crowley, La.

Yes, he was.

Could you please tell me when Paul and Jane will get married? Are the Beatles planning another album? When will they be in America? And where can I write directly to John?

Alamagordo, N.M.

You might well arsk. Paul and Jane haven’t set any date as yet. The Beatles have said they will make no more personal appearances, so if they come to America it will not be for concert purposes. Paul was here in April. They do, however, have a nine-year recording contract, so “Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” most certainly won’t be their last album. Write to John at “Kentwood,” Cavendish Rd., St. George’s Hill, Weybridge, Surrey, England.

I just heard on the radio that Mick Jagger is going steady with Marianne Faithfull. I thought he was married and had a baby. What is the truth?

Baltimore, Md.

Marianne is currently separated from her husband, and she and her 16 mo. old son are living in London. She and Mick have been steadily dating for several months.

In the April issue there was a letter from Kenny White of Dayton, Ohio, asking about a fourth Supreme. There isn’t one, just as you said. But Scott Regan, a D.J. for WKNR, Detroit, had a contest “Record a record with the Supremes” just before Christmas. It was never released, but given to the listeners of the station. This is probobly [sic] where the rumor got started.

What is the real story behind Burt Ward’s divorce and then sudden wedding?
