Yes, I am a good singer.
We did very little improvisation on camera, and once in a while we did.
There hasn't been one show that we did, that I didn't enjoy to some extent.
The most significant thing about the Monkees as a pop phenomenon is that we were the only TV show about young adults that did not feature a wiser, older person.
The groupies are far more real now than there were then.
The blues brings you back into the fold. The blues isn't about the blues, it's about we have all had the blues and we are all in this together.
Oh, the most fun thing I've ever been asked to autograph was breasts.
My most favourite gigs that ever happened were solo, before The Monkees ever happened.
It was so much fun to do, play the blues and then play a Monkees' set on the same night.
I've enjoyed Long Island a lot. There have always been shows here that I enjoyed doing with The Monkees, and solo shows in the 80's.
I have never done Cult TV before, the convention was good. It gives the fans a chance to meet the celebrities. Connect with the guy that used to be a bunch of coloured dots on your TV screen.
I got on with the Byrds much better. I was in Greenwich Village with Roger McGuinn, of The Byrds, we used to smoke and hang out.
I get to play a scorching lead guitar, and there's not much that's more fun than that.
I did as well as I knew how and have nothing to be ashamed of.
I am a still friend with Dave Crosby, he's a weird duck but I like him a lot.
Getting to play the blues has been transcendant for me. I can't say if my finest hour is yet to come, you want to make a dent in this world, well I do anyway.
I don't know about friends, but what time I spent with The Beatles they were very courteous to me.
Shoe Suede Blues is ten years old this year. The Band consists of four members.
Original Monkees' songs were produced very thinly, on purpose.
Ringo is one of the world's true humans. The only one out those four guys, who did not have an agenda. Ringo was just into the music.
Put you energy into music. If it fails you, you can become an accountant or a dentist. And then if you become a dentist or an accountant, it's too late to become a musician afterwards.
Pop music, disco music, and heavy metal music is about shutting out the tensions of life, putting it away.
Pop music is aspirin and the blues are vitamins.
No, in 1968 I still wanted to be a Pop Star, and be about the music. Now, I want to be just about the music.
The Monkees was a straight sitcom, we used the same plots that were on the other situation comedies at the time. So the music wasn't threatening, we weren't threatening.
