Q. Could you please tell me if the Monkees play their own music? I know everyone asks this question but I have never gotten a straight answer. Also, could you tell me how to join their fan club?
A. This is no simple question. The Monkees can and often do play their own music, but frequently do not. Hired musicians played the music on their first two albums, but later the Monkees picked up their own instruments and sort of did it all. Today, while on tour, Davy, Micky, and Peter spend most of their time speaking and singing to their audience while another band plays their tunes. Peter explains, “We don’t want to occupy our hands with instruments all the time… Why should we jam our hands into being guitar players, and piano players, when what we do is clown around? That’s what we are really expert at.” But, he adds, “We might like to pick up our instruments and do a number just to show that we can do it.” The Monkees official fan club, called Monkee Business, is located at 2770 S. Broad St., Trenton, NJ 08610.
