sayjann Posted March 1, 2012 Report Share Posted March 1, 2012 He came across as a good guy, but the Monkees stars were picked for that. When they came in to audition, they had stuff pulled on them like hitting them in the face with a bucket of water or a custard pie. The producers wanted to see how they'd react. http://www.eonline.c...ad_at_66/297688 the tv programme was obviously strictly made to suit their image of silly,happy-go-lucky lads of the era and some of the soundtrack was played by session musicians,whilst the monkees themselves swapped instruments around for various reasons and became a 'better' group amongst themselves. but when they decided to on tour it 'seemed' to come together and they carried the live sound quite well so it seems and they were VERY popular in their day. still performing in various guises until recently and still popular in recent years.
