You Said It


Micky Dolenz

Micky, I love you, but give in a little and comb your hair. I hate curls. So comb it for me, please.

Ronda, N.C.

Why does Micky wear his hair in curls? He looks like some kind of creep! I love Micky but please tell him to wear his hair straight!

I just saw the movie, “Up The Down Staircase,” and I really went for the actor Jeff Howard, who played Joe. Please tell me where I could write to him. Thank you.

Tampa, Fla.

You can write to Jeff c/o Warner Brothers, 666 Fifth Avenue, New York City.

Mike Nesmith

Lots of people like Davy, lots like Micky and lots like Peter. Maybe it’s all in my mind but it seems to me that Mike is not liked so much. Why? I think he is the greatest!

Cleveland, Ohio

Lori B. is lucky if I never see her! She put down Kurt Russell, and probably hurt his feelings badly. Kurt is indescribably wonderful. I hope she has seen the terrible injustice she has done to him. I know many girls who would like to see more of him in your magazine.

Please tell me what happened to Mike Williams. I joined his fan club in May and received one package from him. I wrote a letter to him in August, but it was returned, postage due, and marked “Moved, left no address—return to writer.” Where is he? Please answer this as soon as possible. You’re my only hope to answer this mystery.

Boston, Mass.

Mike’s last known personal address was 8843 Wonderland Avenue, Los Angeles, Calif. 90046.

Whatever happened to Don McKinney? Is he sick? Please tell me about him!

Big Don was suffering from exhaustion when he left The Goodtimes. He has returned home since, and is now planning his future.

Blah, blah, blah! I read one of the letters to FLIP in which she went on and on about how she loved and respected The Beatles. Well, give her a little of this information: The Beatles are out! The Monkees and The Raiders have done them in for good!

Why does everyone make fun of Micky’s nose? I don’t think it’s so bad. In fact, I think it’s cute!

Anyone who doesn’t believe that Mark Lindsay is the most sincere, kindest, sweetest, grandest person ever born, and anybody who doesn’t believe that he answers his fan mail, just look at me! I got a personal note from Mark Allen himself just the other day in his own handwriting! So there!

Salisbury, N.C.

We recently met The Lewis and Clarke Expedition. Johnny, Boomer, Travis, John and Ken are so sweet and friendly. The Monkees picked them for stardom. Please print some articles on the grooviest guys in the world!

Mike & Micky
I have two Monkees on my mind
I think about them all the time
Their hair—so long and neat
Make them look so cuddly and sweet
My love for them grows each day
I always know I will feel this way

I would like to say that I think Pam Cudy’s idea is really great. I think that having one TV channel for teenagers would really be neat!

Davy Jones

What do you think of on December 30, or when you go walking alone through a beautiful forest, or when you walk along the beach, or when you take a long walk at night by yourself, or when you talk to anyone on the phone, or when you dream a beautiful sweet dream?

I, for one, think of that precious little mini-Monkee Davy Jones!!

Is it true that each of The Monkees have lost 1/10 of their hearing because of all the noise during their summer tour?

Indianapolis, Indiana

Here we go again! Another outrageous Monkee rumor which isn’t true! We’ll say it again: Don’t believe anything about The Monkees unless you read it in FLIP! Rumors have been killing The Monkees all year long. It’s about time that we all killed the rumors!!

I recently got Paul Revere and The Raiders’ new album, Revolution, and I think it is absolutely great. They sound different—better than before. They were excellent before, so I don’t know what it makes them now!

Skokie, Illinois

A lot of people have been saying that they wish people would quit knocking The Monkees, etc. I wish people would quit knocking groups, period! Just because you don’t happen to like a group, you don’t have to put them down! And if their music doesn’t make you happy or you just don’t like it, you don’t have to spoil it for someone else by saying they’re rotten! Grow up! If you can’t say something nice about them, then shut up! (P.S.—3 Cheers for Ron Fehr of Canada! It’s about time that someone said something about The Beatles. They are the greatest! Even if they aren’t your favorite group, you’ve gotta admit that if they hadn’t come along, maybe no one else would’ve.)
