    I think they did considering what they were, a manufactured programmed pop music machine.

    Michael Nesmith, in my opinion, was the only guy in that group who had any innate talent or appeal.

    My friend told me about this, and I thought she was joking.

    And then I saw her face.

    Too bad they got screwed. They only played a band on TV and got no royalties from their songs.

    Of all the Monkees, I'd say Ringo was my favorite.
