Over the last few weeks, longtime Monkees fan Jennifer Winkle has been sharing with the Live Almanac her rich collection of photos from Monkees concerts going all the way back to 2001. Jennifer has taken some great photos, and you'll be seeing them here on the blog and elsewhere over the coming months. Here's two from The Monkees' show at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on December 2, the last night of the 2012 tour.
Here's some great footage filmed on November 30, 2012 at the State Theatre Regional Arts Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Everyone's on the same page here...Peter nails the vocal on "Can You Dig It" and Micky delivers another great rendition of "As We Go Along." You can also get an appreciation for some of Peter's guitar work, particularly the subtleties he adds to "As We Go Along." And check out Peter and Mike having a good laugh at Micky at the end of "Can You Dig It." Enjoy!
Micky covers a lot of ground in this interview published on October 28, 2012, right before the start of the 2012 Monkees tour. Topics discussed include his latest solo album, Remember; The Beatles; "Randy Scouse Git;" Justus; Harry Nilsson; The Point; working with Davy in the 1970s; Head; Michael's return to The Monkees in 2012; architecture; Frank Zappa; and much more. (Caution: the interview contains some strong language in the event you have younger viewers!)
Just a fantastic take of a classic song...
