You Told Me

I went to a Monkees concert at the Seattle Colosseum, in 1968. Except for the screaming of prepubescent girls, it was the best event I've ever attended.

If you are one of those who thinks the Monkees didn't play their own instruments or lip-synched the lyrics, you don't know the Monkees. All of them were Top Drawer musicians. While Davy Jones perhaps couldn't play anything in the beginning, he eventually learned. (Look at some YT videos of their live performances.) Peter Tork was classically trained. Michael Nesmith had always played the guitar. Mickey Dolenz never thought he was a decent drummer, but he is. While it's true that Colgem were using the boys as a front to make money, they demanded artistic rights, proving themselves to be at the top of their game. --Terry DeLaney
