“I think the Monkees are the biggest thing since the Beatles. I went to Peter’s home for dinner and we spent the evening talking about music. I found him to be a very talented guitarist. People say they’re not musicians, but I think Peter’s a brilliant guitar player. A lot of people don’t realise they’ve been around for years – working and roughing it. Davy Jones worked in the States for six years, so you can’t say that’s getting to the top the easy way! I think it’s great – Davy being English, going out of the country unknown and coming back and being treated like a king. It’s a great achievement. I found Davy and all the Monkees to be very down to earth. I’m for all of them. They’re great!” ~ Dave Clark on the Monkees – Tiger Beat, September 1967

 

 

 

“The gap between young people and the older generation is far greater in the States than here. Possibly because American youngsters don’t leave college until they’re twenty-two. In England I was earning a living when I was sixteen. Sometimes I think that some of the more objectionable Americans – don’t get the impression they’re all against the young, I’ve some real good friends there – would have been better if they had gone through the kind of war we did in Britain. They have no conception of what the Blitz was like or that in England ‘candy’ was on ration until 1953. It would have softened a lot of them.” ~ Davy on the older generation criticising the young – Rave Magazine Issue #39, April 1967

“Mike Nesmith says that his wife Phyllis is the first girl that ever took any serious romantic interest in him.” ~ 101 Facts about the Monkees – Rave Magazine Issue #40, May 1967

 

 

 

“Mike Nesmith’s description of the Monkees: - himself – tall, skinny and ugly. Micky – a Chihuahua. Peter – astute and articulate. Davy – cute and loveable.” ~ 101 Facts about the Monkees – Rave Magazine Issue #40, May 1967

 

 

 

 

“The London defences seemed to be building up well. The only fans who managed to infiltrate through the security cordon were two girl admirers who working in a Park Lane florist’s shop. They brought a bouquet of anemones, Davy’s favourite flower, as a tribute, and presented them with shy good manners. I could see he was touched by this contrast to the savage worship of the American streets.” ~ The difference between English and American fans - Rave Magazine Issue #40, May 1967

 

 

 

 

“Davy and I walked to the Arc de Triumphe and the Eiffel Tower. We stopped to eat at several sidewalk cafes – just like any tourists that ever hit Paris. Mike walked with Bob Rafelson, one of the producers of the Monkees TV show, to St. Germain. Peter and Micky stayed at the hotel and talked all night with a whole mess of people, Samantha Juste included, of course. They ate cheese and sandwiches, talking the whole night through.”  ~ David Price on the Monkees in Paris – Tiger Beat, September 1967

 

 

 

“Dad hasn’t really grasped the enormity of our success in the States. He still gives my home address to fans who call at the house but he’s beginning to realise now.” ~ Davy on the Monkee success – Rave Magazine Issue #39, April 1967

 

 

 

“Davy had room number 451 and Peter had number 452; they both connected. Mike and Micky had separate rooms on the same floor. Everybody’s room was furnished in original Victorian – kind of a change from the Hollywood modern the guys were used to. Samantha Juste flew in from London so Micky was really excited. They spent a lot of time together talking.” ~ David Price on the Monkees in Paris – Tiger Beat, September 1967
