MONKEE MICKY DOLENZ ON TODAYS TEEN IDOLS

Micky Dolenz



While tub thumping his new album (Live At BB King’s) on XM’s BRETT WINTERBLE the other day, the two got into a conversation over the antics of some of today’s teen-idols … as Micky was one of the first ever, during his early-tenure with The Monkees.


Dolenz said, “The best thing that ever happened to me was that after Circus Boy (his early TV show), my parents took me out of show business, so I didn't have that period of being a has been, and I went back to school, and then 8 years later The Monkees hit. I was studying to be an architect, and, I had show business to fall back on.”


Continues Winterble, “That’s the measure of success, sometimes the parents have got to say no. Sometimes the most liberating word of all is no.”
