What would a 10th Anniversary Monkees reunion in 1976 have looked like? The Monkees did in fact convene at the time to discuss the subject. "We met up at my house, up in the Hollywood Hills," Micky told Monkees archivist Andrew Sandoval. "I think it was William Morris [agency] or something expressed an interest in putting the act back together. Everybody was very enthusiastic about it on the surface. You know, 'Oh great, great idea,' but when it got down to the nitty gritty there were too many conflicting feelings and attitudes....Actually I remember it being really excting. We all got together for the first time in quite a few years in the same room and there was a hell of a buzz."
Davy also spoke about a potential Monkees reunion at the time with reporter Ivor Davis. "We did try to get together again. We could have picked up £100,000 [pounds] to reunite for just one hamburger commercial. Peter and Mike said no."
When Monkees reunion plans fell through, Micky and Davy teamed up with Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart instead, releasing an album of all new material and performing a number of successful concerts.
