The Monkees, illustrated here on a stairwell in Los Angeles in 1965 with Davy Jones, age 20, Micky Dolenz, age 20, Peter Tork, age 23 and Michael Nesmith, age 23.
The Monkees are an American rock and pop band originally active between 1966 and 1971, with reunion albums and tours in the decades that followed.
The group was conceived in 1965 by television producers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider specifically for the situation comedy series The Monkees, which aired from 1966 to 1968.
The four musicians were chosen from a list of 437 applicants.
The band’s music was initially supervised by record producer Don Kirshner, backed by the songwriting duo of Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart.
The four actor/musicians were initially allowed only limited roles in the recording studio for the first few months of their five-year career as “The Monkees”. This was due in part to the amount of time required to film the television series.
Following the television show’s cancellation in 1968, The Monkees continued to record music until 1971, after which the group broke up.
Ironically, the success of the show led to the actor-musicians becoming one of the most successful bands of the 1960s. The Monkees have sold more than 75 million records worldwide making them one of the biggest-selling groups of all time with international hits, including “Last Train to Clarksville”, “I’m a Believer”, “Pleasant Valley Sunday”, and “Daydream Believer”.
When Mike Nesmith was 13, his mother invented the typewriter correction fluid known commercially as “Liquid Paper”.
Over the next 25 years, she built the Liquid Paper Corporation into a multimillion-dollar international company.
Their 45th anniversary tour was the last with Jones, who died of a heart attack at age 66 on February 29, 2012.
Peter Tork died of cancer on February 21, 2019, eight days after his 77th birthday.
Nesmith died from heart failure at his home in Carmel Valley, California, on December 10, 2021, at the age of 78.
