Thanks sweetie, :mrgreen: after I saw the Riu Chiu video I went walking in a Monkey wonderland smiley_dance and I was thinking of creating a playlist but haven't done it yet, the above is a great start. ::coolglasses:: They made a movie in 1968. I would recommend it for it's musical and historical value. It's called "Head".
This group of guys were really underrated. Few took them seriously, and they all had talent...
If you think about it, the Monkeys were really the first ones to be in Music Videos, due to their TV show that utilized one of their songs as part of the story line. I thought the slapstick comedy was hilarious, my mother thought it was horrible, course Dad didn't like either...always complaining that the instrumentals were too loud and you couldn't hear them singing, (but he said that about all rock and roll :evil: )

there was TV movie made that documented how The Monkeys came into being:

For those who would like to read more...this is what our good friends at wikipedia have to say:

Thanks for walking down memory lane with Kassandra and I,...
... it's been Groovy!

I'm a bit of Nez Head myself. I have always liked Mike Nesmith, pioneer of "country rock."
