Band Biography

The Monkees were put together originally for the TV show of the same name, and although it was common knowledge that they didn't play instruments on the records, the members of the Monkees were accomplished musicians in and for Headquarters, they insisted on playing everything their own instruments. They released a film Head, though it was very experimental and excellent, it bombed; the folks who would have liked it didn't see it because it was the Monkees, and the folks who saw it because it was the Monkees didn't like it, because it wasn't at all like the TV show. They ended up breaking up in 1970, though they've reformed from time to time, usually without Mike Nesmith, who had a successful solo career as a solo musician and film producer, among other things.

The Monkees and their Muppet Spoofs

The Monkees are a pop rock band, who were formed in 1966 for a television series of the same name, which aired from 1966 to 1968. Members of the band were Americans Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Englishman Davy Jones. The band was created to capitalize on the popularity of The Beatles' film A Hard Day's Night, and the television series would follow the adventures of the fictitious band.

The band was spoofed on Muppets Tonight as The Benedictine Monkees. Bandmember Micky Dolenz also appeared in episode 105, performing one of the band's hit songs, "I'm a Believer," with Bobo the Bear.
