There's so many great things about this screenshot from the Monkees Blu-ray set (courtesy of the fantastic Sunshine Factory) - Nez picking at Davy's customized Gretsch bass guitar, Micky's champagne sparkle Gretsch drums, all while relaxing in the pad.
"Peter's a real buster...a real musician's musician. Whenever we'd go anywhere...we could go into a lobby and there'd be a four-piece group or a cello and string section - wouldn't matter what - and he'd be up there with his banjo or whatever instrument was close by, and he'd be jamming with them. He's that kind of guy."
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!
