"I'm sorry to say that I never met The Monkees. I didn't meet them when they recorded 'I'm a Believer,' but I will always be grateful to them because they kind of saved my career. I had a huge hit with 'Cherry, Cherry' and the next record out was kind of a bomb... and in those days, you had to have one hit after another and if you missed one, you could expect that the radio would stop playing you altogether unless you had another obvious hit for them to go on again."
