Enter Micky Dolenz

This week I start subbing the drum chair in the pit at The Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, CT. The show is the revival of Pippin and features Micky Dolenz in the role of Charlemaigne, Pippin's father. It is a kind of dream come true for me to be playing drums for Micky, since the Monkees were one of the reasons I became a musician to begin with. To help celebrate I bring you this gem from The Monkees: the soundtrack from "33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee", their ill-fated 1969 NBC television special. This is quite the bizarre show and the music from it features The Monkees as a group as well as individually. There is also some great music from Brian Auger and Julie Driscoll. Enjoy!

Very nice. I saw the special a few years ago and to be honest I sort of felt sorry for them. It seems the thing served to further humilate them at that point.

If I recall there were much bigger plans for that special that never materialized.

Stil it's an interesting find. :)
