    They were a very good group especially if you consider that the shows producers put them together as a band. They never knew each other before the show. And then they sold millions of records, their tunes still alive today.
    I sat and watched and sang with them. I am very saddened by his passing at an early age.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    I was sad to hear it as well. I enjoy their songs. The Monkees were one of the original boy bands.

    I had a major crush on Davy too. I had the posters and lots of The Monkee's 45s. I was 10 in 1967 I watched the TV show too.

    I have often wandered what happened to them. I was doing some of my family history stuff about 6 months ago and came across some old photos that my sister-in-law took of them when they got off the plane for their first concert in Richmond, VA. She wanted to just toss them out but I held on to them because I loved them all so much as I was growing up so I just tucked them away so I could continue to have my treasured memories. Hugs to his family, with a tearful eye, we will always remember how they added so much fun to our lives.
