    I think Dolenz is the only one still alive, Bob.

    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.

    I remember them. They were good too. Wrong name though I think. They should have had a name dopey Civvy kids could relate to.... Like The Rolling Zeppelins. ....or Led Slade. Same with the Monkees. Who the fook would call themselves The Monkees ?

    No they did not name themselves Pat. They were not a band of young kids that got together. They were a manufactured entity that were auditioned and picked out of hundreds of musically inclined actors for a 30 minute sitcom.The name of that was "The Monkees" They were never a band in the usual sense. It was not about music at first. It was about acting. They were supposed to be trying to emulate the Beatles..... and failing. That was the comedy theme. Then they caught on and went on tour.
