Micky’s house in the Hollywood hills is the grooviest Swiss chalet you can imagine! So you can guess the excitement when Coco offered to take Fave on an exclusive photo tour! With Coco leading the way for our trusty photographer, we peeked into Micky’s cupboards and wardrobe closets, poked through his records, books and technical magazines. We even explored the trees and bushes of the mini-forest that surrounds his hideaway—all the while stepping over and around Micky’s many kits and cats.
Inside Micky’s house, the high ceiling beams and ancient masks hung on the living-room balcony look ancient. It’s as if the time machine were turned back several centuries—until you see Micky’s ultra-modern stereo system, the stacks of albums, and his ultra-modern kitchen equipment! There is a huge fireplace, of course, with big colorful pillows for Micky to flop on when he finishes a long day on the Monkee set. Glowing candles and beads hanging from the chandeliers show Micky’s concern for the love movement. There’s even a lamp with a “lampshade” he made entirely of wire love and peace symbols.
