The music career that White-Out made possible. Happy 73rd, Mike.
Avatar 12:14pm

Nifty story about Mike, told by Bobby Hart at his Monty Hall appearance earlier this year. The cover photo of their first album (see photo link below) shows the other three flashing big smiles and Mike pursing his lips. According to Bobby, the boys were dragged off the set for that photo shoot. Mike, impatient, told the photographer that he would tolerate only ten shots. What we see in that album photo is Mike uttering the word "seven".
Avatar 12:15pm

One more and then I'll stop. Is "Some of Shelly's Blues" the answer song to "Different Drum"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm

Your first statement is false, Parq! Mike joined the Monkees when (and because) he was broke. He didn't see his Liquid Paper inheritance until the late 70s.
Avatar 12:18pm

Amanda, hon, my point exactly. That's when he started making the music he really wanted to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm

It could certainly be taken that way. I mean, if Different Drum is sung by the girl, which more famously it was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm

Well, I guess then you mean two separate careers but I don't buy that they can be separated.

Sweet YOUNG Thing - toss the canes & romp !

Minor quibble. Rock on. Glad to have a chance to hear your show live for another week.

Amanda, did you ever listen to his Gilbert Gottfried podcast?

"Mary, Mary" is the most Monkee of Monkee songs.

Saw Mr N in '74 just him and Red Rhodes. His intro to 'Joanne' was 'This is a song about a cow'. Take it how you will. He was a bit relaxed.

Ha! I could tell by the hat and hairline that was Mike Nesmith. Happy New Year, Amanda and Drummers! It's my son's birthday today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm

@MB$ - NO, I STILL have not listened to it yet, I am a dweeb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm

@Brian UK -- That is great! I love "Joanne" even more now that I know it's about a cow. Unless he was referring to some girlfriend of his that way.

"The Girl I Knew Somewhere":
Fav romp, laundress Julie Newmar !

Mike told Gottfried the wool cap was to keep his hair outta his eyes when motorcycling; Mike said he BS-ed a reporter the Monkees sold 35mil albums, more than the Beatles in '67, and it got picked up as fact to this day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm
Brian in UK:

Amanda, you make a good point there, it was ambiguous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm

@Ken HP -- happy birthday to your son! An auspicious b'day indeed!

Thanks so much to you and @steve and all who are enjoying the Simpsons Time podcast!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm

@87-plaid: You know, I did pick up that "35mil" gossip even though I didn't listen to it! And I love that particular Monkee romp too.

nice work

Uncle Michael:

I'm loving the Papa Nez tribute, Amanda.

You actually have to hear him tell the whole story, though...it's more amusing than just the fact that he made the number up.

@Amanda: By chance, will any of The Wichita Train Whistle Sings be part of this Nez-tivity celebration?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm

The personal accounts about each Monkee I have heard are fascinatingly all over the place. It's like no two people can agree on which one is the nicest, coolest, or least nice or craziest or whatever. And I'm sure they change from day to day. The exception is that *almost* everyone says Micky is super nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm

@Gaylord, yes it will! Though I am always loath to take my copy out of its protective plastic bag and out into the world!!!

Saw Mickey's cabaret show earlier this year. I initially didn't want to go but ended up amazed, even after two Monkees concerts.

Great show, Amanda.
Read a great interview with John Ware a while back. Think it might have been in an old Zigzag, coincidentally it was Zigzag's fifth birthday concert that Mr N was playing when I saw him.

Ken From Hyde Park:

I'll bet a Simpsons/Monkees crossover episode would have been downright hilarious if they did it right. They both use off-beat humor quite a bit.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm
Gaylord Fields:

Nez once astutely surmised that the Monkees would have been a real band if everyone was on different instruments: Micky as frontman/guitar, Peter as lead guitar, Davy as drummer/vocalist (Davy was actually a decent drummer pre-Monkees), and himself on bass/vox.
Uncle Michael:

I've been in and out of the show. Have we saved the Texas prairie chicken yet?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm
Gaylord Fields:

@johnk77: This is from Michael Nesmith. After all, show producers Rafelson and Schneider weren't going to bury Davy behind the kit, so that's why Micky got the gig. Keep in mind that the Columbia Pictures–contracted Davy was the only "given" for the Monkees project.

Ken From Hyde Park:

We had a Monkees comic book when we were kids. The boys got a job at a zoo. Their boss told Mickey (I think?) to feed the lions and tigers, too. So he fed the lions some ants and was about to give the tigers their stew. Hoo boy.
