In fascinating, star-studded anecdotes, original Monkee Micky Dolenz takes readers from his starring role at age 12 as TV's "Circus Boy," to the open casting call that brought the Monkees together, through the creative conflicts that finally drove them apart. Along the way you'll find hilarious anecdotes about his adventures as a Monkee—the girls, the parties, the celebrities—as well as the harder-edged realities of a life lived in front of a camera.
This book is a must read for all who have been amazed and entertained by these talented guys. I guess I am a second generation fan as I was born in 1963, and saw the reruns as a child. It is a joy to once again sit in the company of Mickey Dolenz and see things through his eyes. This book is a gem and is laugh-out loud funny as well as being poignant in the truth and struggles of their life and times.
