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.Read more ›
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!!!!!!!
