Great book about the story behind The Monkees. I have read a few and this is the best available on Amazon.

Whilst their albums have enjoyed frequent releases since their back catalogue was bought up by Rhino in the late 1980s there continues to remain a dearth of biographies for the biggest manufactured band of all time. Since the publication of Monkeemania The Monkees : Monkeemania in 1986 there has been just the excellent Sandoval book The Monkees: The Day-By-Day Story of the 60s TV Pop Sensation, a couple of editions of Micky Dolenz's autobiography and the odd execrable solo Monkee book (Total Control anyone?). Therefore this newly revised book from Eric Lefcowitz is to be welcomed. It delivers a well researched and brutally honest account of the band's origins right through to their truculent and seemingly endless reunion tours sans Nesmith. There are new anecdotes aplenty and insights into the fault lines that existed between the four actors almost before the series went on air.

Refreshingly and as might be expected, all these years later, the heart throb turns out to be a diva, the Texan is the arch manipulator, the dumb one is ultimately most damaged by the instant stardom and only Dolenz comes out the other side with anything resembling a normal life intact. The book pulls few punches and so the other players in it who get a less than impressive description are the band creators - rich kids Rafelson and Schneider and the Simon Cowell of his day Don Kirshner. Kirshner knew what would make the charts but as the Monkees demonstrated their music was far more interesting when he had been pushed to the sidelines.

The recent death of Davy Jones has rekindled my memories of being a Monkees fan in the 1960's so I thought I'd download this to fill in the gaps.
I can't be bothered to write a long winded review, the previous contributors have made a good job of it anyway. I did find the last few chapters quite sad, as the remaining three scratched around for work, the glory days far behind them. I did find the author's constant sniping of Davy Jones quite wearing after a while, the only flattering thing he wrote about Davy Jones was:
'Adorable Davy Jones took to wearing love beads with his paisley-printed shirts and crisply laundered Nehru jackets. Stoned or not stoned, he always managed to look sharp'
And he even managed to make that sound peevish, I don't know what DJ had done to the author but he REALLY does not like him!!!!!!!
