During filming of Head, The Monkees' 1968 feature film, 16 Magazine published photos from what ultimately became deleted scenes from the movie:
A friend of Mike's in the pre-Monkees era, John London and Nez traveled to Los Angeles from Texas in 1964. London later became Mike's stand-in on the television series and would occasionally play bass guitar on Monkees recordings. He also co-wrote "Don't Call on Me" with Nez, which appeared on The Monkees' fourth album, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. After The Monkees, Mike asked John to join him in the First National Band.
David Pearl was a friend of Mike's from Texas who eventually moved to California and immediately became involved in the Monkees project. Through Nez, Pearl became Peter's stand-in on the television show and was often seen as an extra on many episodes of The Monkees. He also became very good friends with Davy.
Pearl traveled with the group on tour, and in 1969 co-managed the trio of Micky, Davy and Mike.
On April 10, 1969, The Monkees appeared at a youth rally held at the Alabama State Fairgrounds. The next day, the trio performed at the Municipal Auditorium in Birmingham.
