Overview

What was it like to be part of one of the most famous TV and music groups in pop culture history? In fascinating, star-studded anecdote filled biography, original Monkee Micky Dolenz gives readers a snap shot of his history. Herein, 48 year-old Dolenz looks back at his life, concentrating on his years as the drummer for the Monkees, a late '60s rock band prefabricated for television. On one hand, he appears to feel that he was a part of the authentic '60s experience: he describes the afternoon he smoked a joint with Paul McCartney; his attendance at the Monterey Pop FEstival; and Jimi Hendrix's opening for the band on one summer tour. Then Dolenz changes gears, making fun of the hippie ideology of bandmate Peter Tork, whom he portrays as ranting about "fat-cat, big business fascist pigs!"
