Micky Dolenz



DEATH OF A MONKEE - It was quite a week for Monkee-Micky Dolenz as his mate Davy Jones unexpectedly passed away on Wednesday. Per his spokesperson David Salidor, “Micky was in New York to rehearse for a projected new play Garage Band.” Dolenz appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan later that night; and, followed up Thursday morning with Today; Access Hollywood; Good Morning America; and Good Day New York, with Roseanna Scotto and Greg Kelly. Over the weekend he spoke to People; L.A. Times and Gary Graff from The Detroit Free Press. It’s always a delicate maneuver handling the media after such an incident, but from what I witnessed, Dolenz handled it with true class. You want to properly memorialize your friend. I heard him say in one interview that the two had known each other for 47 years. Personally, I liked the interview he did with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos; with his interview being succinct, concise and spot-on perfect. I actually met Jones for the first time last summer when the band performed on The View; during their 45th reunion tour. I found him exceptionally charming and exactly like I had heard he was for years. I tell you one thing; the media coverage was very impressive. No doubt his passing touched the nerves of many. Rest easy Davy.
