Old School: The Monkees

Valleri – The Monkees (1968)

The Monkees
Micky Dolenz (1945-present), Michael Nesmith (1942-present), Peter Tork (1942-present), & Davy Jones (1945-2012)

Genre: Pop-rock / Bubblegum pop
Origin: Los Angeles > California > US
Career: 1966-1970
Tidbit: Cast and launched for a television series, most of the Monkees were musicians…but none of them was a drummer. Davy Jones, the only non-musician, was too short and got lost behind the drums, so Micky Dolenz won the job. And then learned how to play drums.
