Hey, hey, The Monkees’ reunion tour is hitting the skids before it has even started.
The bad blood between them is causing some serious hassle in rehearsals for their 45th anniversary jaunt next month – they barely speak to one another and have insisted on separate trailers.
A source said: “It’s nearly impossible to get them to agree on anything. All discussions are via a third party – ‘Mr Dolenz wants this, Mr Tork is insisting on that’.
“They’re setting up so many obstacles for themselves that their tour looks doomed before it’s even begun.”
Last night a spokesman for the tour said it was (Monkee) business as usual, adding: “The band members’ requests for the tour are far from unusual. They are all very much looking forward to seeing all their fans again.”
Only three members of the original band – DAVY JONES, MICKY DOLENZ and PETER TORK – are on the tour, which kicks off in Liverpool on May 12. MIKE NESMITH, who inherited a multi-million-dollar fortune from his inventor mother, refused to join the reunion. Sounds like a wise move.
Here’s Peter Tork’s response:
“Please, unattributed sources saying things are bad? Give me a break. Separate trailers? What, separate Volkswagen Beetles? I mean, really. I could hardly be more disdainfully dismissive of what The Sun has to say… In other words, it’s all horse pucky.”$
You heard the man…HORSE PUCKY! You gotta believe :-)
