  12. Which Monkees were to be replaced during filming of the Monkees series at various times and what were the reasons they were to be replaced?

    All of them and for the following reasons:

    Mike - Too much trouble recording-wise.

    Boyce, Hart and Kirshner thought he was a total pain set up a meeting with Wayne Erwin. Kirshner told of how he was going to get rid of Mike and would he like to be first choice as replacement. Of course Kirsh never got his way here.

    Ref: Total Control pgs 47 & 48

    Micky - Draft papers came through.

    Thought his Perthese disease would be the saver but found they didn’t care, in the end depending on his mood it was either his poor eyesight or he was too skinny that saved him.
    Ref: I’m A Believer pgs 86 - 89

    Davy - Draft papers came through. He was considered a valid US troop due to paying tax to Uncle Sam, stories are he paid someone who knew how to get him out of it and found they ‘lost’ all the J files that the army had, a petition was started definitely in the UK and sent to the US embassy to tell them where to go, he began to starve himself. Depending on his mood it was either the fact he was too thin, too small, married or his fathers sole provider. Tim Rooney is rumoured to have been considered as a replacement.

    Ref: Monkeemania pg 76, Peter has made references to this many times in many interviews.

  13. Who opted for the pay by profit scheme from "Head" & what happened?


    Thinking he was an astute businessman he wanted to be paid by profits, not a salary/ chunk like the other 3 decided on. He got bot all cause the film bombed! This was probably one of the reasons he didn’t go on strike with the others as he felt he’d get more moola if waiting for the profits, also he was about to leave so rocking the boat wouldn’t have been too bright.

    Ref: Mojo Magazine June Edition pg 48.

  14. Who was arrested in New York City for promoting "Head"?

    It’s not shown in broadcast order, the sequences are all to pot, however when I got to see the broadcast order tape it still made no sense at all! It wasn’t as easy as just covers but you got points if you mentioned that, if it were covers then the other tape wouldn’t have been mentioned folks!
