Forced into the teen idol role by Hollywood Jones was the one teen idol that resonated across the years. Jones pondered what it meant to have posters of his face plastered across so many teenagers walls when he co-wrote the song “Ceiling in my Room” (with Dominick DeMieri and Robert Dick) for the group’s fifth album The Birds, The Bees and The Monkees.

27: Peter Meyerson and The Monkees : “Why The Monkees Matter” Interview with Jean Power

 

Transcript:

Rosanne: Another gentleman I got to meet — and sadly who passed away 6 months after I met him — was Peter Meyerson, He ended up later in life he co-created Welcome Back, Kotter which interestingly enough it’s a show about 4 boys.

Jean: I love the show.

Rosanne: Four boys who were in school — in high school. So, Peter Meyerson, he was marvelous. he came in also because of a very hippie attitude. In fact, he went to the Monterey Pop Festival. He was the kind of guy who hung out at all those events. He wore the paisley clothing and the necklaces. He just really bought into that whole Ideology and so you see that represented then in some of his episodes. And he was great and he told me some very funny stories about hanging out with the actors at parties and whatnot.

A hit television show about a fictitious rock band, The Monkees (1966-1968) earned two Emmys–Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Comedy. Capitalizing on the show’s success, the actual band formed by the actors, at their peak, sold more albums than The Beatles and The Rolling Stones combined and set the stage for other musical TV characters from The Partridge Family to Hannah Montana. In the late 1980s, the Monkees began a series of reunion tours that continued into their 50th anniversary.

This book tells the story of The Monkees and how the show changed television, introducing a new generation to the fourth-wall-breaking slapstick created by Laurel and Hardy and the Marx Brothers. Its creators contributed to the innovative film and television of 1970s with projects like Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Laugh-In and Welcome Back, Kotter. Immense profits from the show, its music and its merchandising funded the producers’ move into films such as Head, Easy Rider and Five Easy Pieces.

Rosanne Welch, PhD has written for television (Touched by an Angel, Picket Fences) and print (Three Ring Circus: How Real Couples Balance Marriage, Work and Kids and The Encyclopedia of Women in Aviation and Space). In the documentary world she has written and produced Bill Clinton and the Boys Nation Class of 1963 for ABC NEWS/Nightline and consulted on PBS’s A Prince Among Slaves, the story of a prince from West Africa who was enslaved in the 1780s, freed by order of President John Quincy Adams in the 1820s and returned to his homeland.

From The Research Vault: The Politics of Ecstasy by Timothy Leary

 

Writings that sparkle with the psychedelic revolution. The Politics of Ecstasy is Timothy Leary’s most provocative and influential exploration of human consciousness, written during the period from his Harvard days to the Summer of Love. Includes his early pronouncements on the psychedelic movement and his views on social and political ramifications of psychedelic and mystical experience.
Here is the outspoken Playboy interview revealing the sexual power of LSD-a statement that many believe played a key role in provoking Leary’s incarceration by the authorities; an early outline of the neurological theory that became Leary’s classic eight-circuit model of the human nervous system; an insightful exploration of the life and work of novelist Hermann Hesse; an effervescent dialogue with humorist Paul Krassner; and an impassioned defense of what Leary called “The Fifth Freedom”-the right to get high. — Amazon

** Buy “Why The Monkees Matter” Today **

Quotes from

 In terms of creating the fictional identity of “Micky the Monkee”, Dolenz felt the writers created the character more so than he did: “They were looking for that guy who just jumped off the screen at them. And to say how much of it was me — I don’t know if I can quantify it. They developed that character of the wacky drummer. They gave me the funny voice. I don’t do funny voices all the time and I don’t run backward at a high rate of speed. But it was partly my personality.”

26: Treva Silverman and The Monkees : “Why The Monkees Matter” Interview with Jean Power

 

Transcript:

Jean: I love talking about this.

Rosanne: Well, and that’s how it applies to The Monkees because they looked for young writers. Treva Silverman was beginning her career.

Jean: Let’s talk about the writers on The Monkees? So, Treva Silverman’s a woman, right? Woman Writer. All right, let’s talk about Treva.

Rosanne: I love Treva. She’s wonderful. You can look at the Academy of Television Arts. They have a good oral interview with her that goes through The Monkees and Mary Tyler Moore. She’s wonderful.

Jean: Ok, so she’s the only female writer on there.

Rosanne: She was. Many of them came from New York because a lot of TV had still being done in New York and they were also kind of younger — quote/unquote — hipper. She came out here and she really loved it. She admitted to me that it was the first time she had ever smoked pot and she found it fabulous. And her friends back home were still a little too

Jean: Go LA!

Rosanne: — exactly. The things you’re going to learn in LA, but the fact is she could come in with a more feminist attitude and make sure that the female characters were not these crazy, silly nonsense women.

Jean: And she was sought after to go after this demographic — this new demographic.

Rosanne: Yes. Yes, definitely

 Quotes from

Eventually, the band members’ individual personalities were made apparent enough that they could even joke about the earlier confusion. In “Monkees Paw” (episode 51, season two) the show ends with Mike saying, “Well that wraps up another hilarious 30 minute episode. This is Mike Nesmith.” Davy says he’s Peter Tork, Micky says he’s Davy Jones, and Peter says he’s Micky Dolenz.

25: Improv, Writers and The Monkees : “Why The Monkees Matter” Interview with Jean Power

 

Transcript:

Rosanne: So you couldn’t be as improv’d as you might think they were. Much of the improvisation was written into the script or, if they made something up on the set, and the directors approved it, it would have to fit it…

Jean: They would work it in. There would be discussion — you’re going to say this. You’re going to say that.

Rosanne: Exactly and so Micky admitted that most of it was scripted and that they did a good job memorizing it and delivering it in a spontaneous way that seemed like they were making it up. So it was really interesting to get his perspective int hat respect and to, of course, credit the writers. One of my missions as a professor of television

Jean:…and a writer…

Rosanne: …is to make sure more credit is given to the writers because if you like a particular writer on a show, you should look at their career on IMDB and look at their previous work. You might find that you like the themes that they bring out and you’re a fan of their writing not necessarily of the person who produces that show.
