    I am a huge Monkee fan as I am a Beatles fan, and have collected anything I could get my hands onto.

    Let's Monkee around and focus more on the talents of these 4 guys, the working of a real band as well as having fun with the television show,movie,merch. ect.

    Those that have not cared much, past the television show,should have fun viewing.

    Post opinions,pictures,vids...:cheers:

    I always love the Monkees music as well as their TV show. Whenever I would be asked to bring the music for a party whether it was in the 80's or even now,I always had/have the Monkees.At any time you can throw a Monkees tune in the mix & people will love it.
    My Favorite tunes are "Pleasant Valley Sunday","Stepping Stone", & "Mary Mary" but I love just about everything they did.

    Nice pics Flower.. :grinthumb

    Yeah Thump I do have HEAD. It's an awesome movie it really is.

    As far as "flop" goes it kinda was. I mean back in '68 it was too heavy for the teen girls and too Monkees for the heavy fans.

    But over time it became loved by all (or a much larger audience) and critics too. Much like Magical Mystery Tour for the Beatles.

    But Jack Nicholson makes a cameo and also co-wrote wrote and co-directed HEAD with Bob Rafelson who worked on the television show too.

    Their next movie together would be....
