A monkey pops his cloggs

#11
Why is it important or relivant that this monkey popped his clogs? I don't understand.

MiSoGr to all
Why is it relEvant? Well apart from the fact that Mr. Jones was a member of a the foremost musical combo of his era, giving inspiration to the likes of Led Zep, Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath, it's not.

Who can forget such classics as "Last train to Clarksville" and "Wake up sleepy Jean"? Not I unfortunately!

MSG to each.

Do what? Have you been at the sherry already? Leaving aside the emerging Motown (founded in 1960) scene here is a list of bands that were playing when the Monkees were formed. You could argue that they were the first Boy Band since they were selected by a management team to appeal to girls who were already screaming and throwing their panties at this lot...

  1. The Beatles (too many to list)
  2. The Rolling Stones (Satisfaction)
  3. The Kinks (You Really Got me, All the day, All the night)
  4. The Zombies (She's Not There, Tell Her No)
  5. The Dave Clark 5 (Glad All Over, Bits and Pieces. Do You Love me)
  6. The Troggs (Wild Thing)
  7. The Supremes (Stop, in the Name of Love, Baby Love)
  8. The Yardbirds (Heart full of Soul)
  9. Spencer Davis Group (Gimme Some Lovin, I'm a Man)
  10. Dovovan
  11. The 4 Seasons (sherry)
  12. The Beach Boys (409, Fun, Fun, Fun and many more)
  13. Jan & Dean (Surf City, Little old lady from Pasadena)
  14. The Ronettes (main competitor to The Supremes)
  15. The Animals (Don't Bring Me down, House of the Rising Sun and more)
  16. Paul Revere and the Raiders
  17. Petula Clark (Downtown)
  18. Manfred Mann (Do Wah Diddy)
  19. The Hollies
  20. Herman's Hermits

Massive heart attack apparently. Looking at his 3rd wife, I'm not really surprised. You were 66 for Christ's sake Davy, you should have got yourself an OAP. Definitely the way to go though.

Unfortunately TI D, like many others, you miss the nuances of their particular style of music.
For example, who could deny that "I'm a believer" was the inspiration behind "Stairway to Heaven" (as performed by Rolf Harris)?
