Jeannie Franklyn (aka Genie The Tailor) was a fashion designer and a member of the Sunset Strip underground scene in the 1960s. She had her own boutique where she sold handmade clothes during the latter half of the 1960s. The April 1968 issue of Fave covered the opening of her shop on Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood, where Micky Dolenz and Samantha Juste were among a gathering of many special guests. Franklyn was killed in a bus crash in 1969.
Ric Klein, Micky's stand-in during filming of The Monkees television series and Head, and stage manager for The Monkees on their live concert tours, acted as best man at the ceremony.
In late 1968, The Monkees toured Australia and Japan. On September 30, The Monkees left Australia and traveled to Tokyo, Japan for the second leg of the tour. The group and their tour party were forced to stop in Hong Kong when their flight hit severe weather.
