Micky Dolenz Says The Monkees ‘Didn’t Intend’ to Be the ‘Original Garage Band’

Micky Dolenz is headed on the road to perform The Monkees third album Headquarters live. This watershed third Monkees LP proved the band was more than a made-for-television musical group. As the tour commences, Dolenz reflects on all that went into making the LP, what it means to play those songs live, and how The Monkees influenced an entire genre of performers.

The Monkees genuinely expressed themselves as musicians on ‘Headquarters’

Liner notes on the back of the Headquarters LP expressed The Monkees intent with their third LP. “We aren’t the only musicians on this album,” an inscription on the back cover reads. “The occasional extra bass or horn player played under our direction, so this is all ours.”
