The beach Boys and countless other bands at the time were borrowing session people-why not the Monkees? Two fine vocalists-Davy-Baritone-Mickey-Tenor,two fine instrumentalists-Peter and Mike(a fine songwriter in his own right)-and some of the most creative pop to come out of that decade. Randy Scouse Git alone is as -dare I say it?-as innovative as anything else to come out of that summer of (Sgt. Pepper)love. Thank you Mickey. Experimentally as good as most pop coming out of that era. I only wish Mike would have been at the 2001 Westbury Music Fair Concert, which was professional, exciting,and brought back warm memories. Screw the hippie press- the Monkees were real, talented, and fun. God Bless Them!
