My God. What’s next for those ever-loving Monkees. They’ve been cowboys, Indians, firemen, scientists, musicians, doctors… and now they’re HELL’S ANGELS, WILD ANGELS! It certainly was a shock for the guys at HULLABALOO when we motored out to the Screen Gems lot and found Davy, Micky, Peter, and Mike all decked out in those ferocious-looking, black leather motorcycle get-ups. To think that just a few months ago, they were the lovable old Monkees, newest stars on the pop horizon—never a frown, never a nasty word. But now… black leather, spikes, two-inch-thick garrison belts. It was almost too much to take. That is, until we learned that they were dressed up for the shooting of their next TV show. Really, though, we knew all along—even if they were dressed up all mean and everything—that they’d always be the lovable old Monkees.
