In honor of the segment CBS Sunday Morning aired today with Micky, Peter and Mike, here’s an interview the show did with Davy in 1993.
Charming is the way he discusses each member’s personality, his pride to still be part of The Monkees and his memories of sitting on the beach during filming and eating their boxed sandwiches. Today on television and film shoots the craft services people dish out lobster and shrimp and all manner of luxury foods to actors and PAs alike.
This segment was part of a look back at what they called “TV Goodies” so not connected with any particular tour. Just a focus on the show – as I do in the book – since that is what started it all. it was fun to watch both segments as I spend my Memorial Day weekend copy-editing the proofs of the book which the publisher sent me this week. They want it to go to print by late June so I’d better get back to work!
