Monkee Business Fanzine was a quarterly publication that featured all the latest about The Monkees and their individual careers, as well as original articles, news, and much more. It was published from 1977 - 2002. Each member of The Monkees would speak personally to Maggie, making it the most reputable source for Monkees information, before and after the 1986 revival of the group. By the early 2000s, the rise and rapid spread of the Internet helped make publications like MBF become defunct.
I briefly met Maggie in New Jersey at a Davy Jones book signing in 1988. Years later she was kind enough to extend a backstage pass to me at a 2001 Monkees concert, and I was happy to be able to say hello and thanks to her (and her mom!) in Atlantic City in 2011 and Philadelphia in 2012.
This is Maggie's farewell essay from the June 2002 MBF, its final issue.
