Ann Moses was the editor of Tiger Beat from 1966 – 1972, writing countless stories about The Monkees during their heyday. Ann also acted as Hollywood Correspondent to Britain's New Musical Express from 1968 - 1971. She has visited with The Monkees backstage during their most recent tours, and had the opportunity to interview Monkees archivist and tour producer Andrew Sandoval before Micky and Michael performed in Phoenix, Arizona last week. Andrew talks about The Monkees' 50th Anniversary, the current tour, and much more. Be sure to visit Ann on the web, too!
Monkee Spectacular was published by Tiger Beat from April 1967 through August 1968 for a total of sixteen issues. Each magazine was completely devoted to The Monkees and featured color photos, exclusive stories, fan letters, contests, and more. Several photos exist showing members of The Monkees reading the magazine during breaks of filming their television show. However, by mid-1968, The Monkees' fortunes had dwindled considerably, and the magazine went out of print. Though it heavily previewed the filming of Head throughout its 1968 issues, Monkee Spectacular was defunct by the time the movie finally premiered in November 1968. As a Monkees fan who has always been interested in their activities throughout 1969, it would have been great if the magazine had continued a little longer!
