Letter from the Editor

Hi there!

Right now our very own Monkees are doing their nuts appearing in front of hundreds and thousands of fans on the other side of the world.

Of course, every Monkee supporter would like Davy, Micky, Mike and Peter to appear in their city or town, but unless they manage to split themselves up into thousands of different pieces, it just isn’t possible. So, let’s be happy for all the lucky fans who are seeing the boys in person this month and look forward to the time when our turn will surely come.

That’s one of the great things about the Monkees. They still like nothing better than to put on a performance for their fans—unlike some of the other top groups who say they’ve given up touring for ever.

I’ve got loads of new film photos for you this month. The boys wore so many different costumes while they were making the picture that I think we could produce half a dozen specials on the movie alone. One thing I do know: these photos are the most unusual pictures of the Monkees I have ever seen—and there will be lots more fabulous pics of the film in future issues.

I think I’ve had more requests to run our new competition than for any other. So, if you feel that you can either draw or cartoon one, two or all of the Monkees, then now is the time to try for one of our £10 prizes.

Please note that we have moved offices and that all letters should be sent to our new address which is :-

58 Parker Street, London, W.C.2.

See you next month.
