9780943249001: Monkee Business: The Revolutionary Made-For-TV Band

In this new, revised edition of Monkee Business: The Revolutionary Made-For-TV Band, author Eric Lefcowitz follows the fascinating story of Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork and the late Davy Jones to the present day, containing never-before-seen photographs and an nisightful new foreword by magician Penn Jillette. If you don't believe the Monkees were one of the most influential forces in the history of entertainment, this new group's critically-hailed biography will make a believer out of you. Lefcowitz chronicles the kaleidoscopic journey of the four Monkees, together and apart, from 1965 to the present day, their role in pioneering music video. With hits like I'm a Believer and Daydream Believer still winning loyal fans generations later, the Monkees have become an American entertainment institution. This is the definitive biography of a rock and roll legend.

Review:

An insightful picture of an outfit that could be quixotically innovative. Four stars. --Mojo Magazine
The Monkees may have been the first--and certainly one of the best--prefab pop bands, but there is nothing ersatz about Eric Lefcowitz's Monkee Business, a fascinating look at a made-for-TV band that wound up being something much greater than its inventors ever hoped or imagined. --Jim DeRogatis, critic, author, and co-host of Sound Opinions.
