This article, written by Monkee Business Fanzine editor Maggie McManus, was published in the March 2002 issue of MBF, which proved to be the penultimate issue. Maggie reveals how Donna and Micky met, the impact 9/11 had on their relationship, and more. On a side note, I'd like to say thank you to both Donna and Micky for their support of the Live Almanac!
Here's some more photos from the 2001 tour, courtesy of Jennifer Winkle!
Over the years, longtime Monkees fan Jennifer Winkle has attended numerous Monkees concerts, and this past winter she shared her rich catalog of photos with the Live Almanac. Here's two collections from concerts at Westbury Music Fair in Westbury, New York in the winter and summer of 2001. You'll also see members of The Monkees' backing band in these slideshows, which featured Wayne Avers (guitar), Dave Alexander (keyboards), Jerry Renino (bass), Aviva Maloney (sax/flute), and Sandy Gennaro (drums). Thanks, Jennifer, and there's more to come!
