    About the Monkees - "Manufactured Image" was what they called it, right? Back then - big deal. Nowadays - not so much.
    I am resisting so HARD starting a Dire Straits topic to go with EF's Keith Urban one.

    However....

    Oh yeah, the boy can play.

    And that "boy" has aged well!

    Default The First CD I Bought

    Oh, this is hard. I believe, however, the first CD I bought was "A Song For You" by the Carpenters. My mom had bought me "Carpenters: Gold 35th Anniversary Edition", but I actually used my own money to buy "A Song For You". It's hard, though, because I think I bought that and "Carpenters" at the same time.

    - Karen Carpenter, "A Song For You"

    Why not? We all have other bands or singers beside the Eagles which we love.

    By coincidence, not only did they play I'm a Believer on the radio this morning, but Peter Tork is the guest on our local radio show today! (He's the one bottom right in that black and white picture).

    Another piece of Monkees trivia: When the Monkees went out on tour for the first time their opening act was then unknown Jimi Hendrix.

    I'd heard about the Hendrix thing, too - apparently, he got booed off the stage!

    Surprising fact 2: Did you know that Jack Nicholson co-wrote that awful Monkees movie Head?

    There is something just so wrong about that.

    Is that so, EF?

    I'll think about it but be warned, it will be self-indulgent.
