With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“Disappointment haunted all of my dreams” August 2, 2017


My wife said that she would leave me if I couldn’t stop my obsession with the Monkees. I thought that she was joking, and then I saw her face……

Anyway although the Monkees were effectively a manufactured band I thought that they were pretty good, how about you? Did you know that over 400 musicians auditioned to be in the band, including Stephen Stills, Harry Nilsson, John Sebastian, Paul Williams, Danny Hutton (of Three Dog Night) and allegedly Charles Manson. Although some reports state that Manson was in prison at the time of the auditions.
