Davy Jones of The Monkees on "The O'Reilly Factor with Bill O'Reilly"
Get The Monkees into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame!
The Monkees' tale is legendary. Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Mike Nesmith and Peter Tork were plucked by fate from a mass casting call in 1965. Asked to portray a zany rock band in the spirit of the Beatles' A Hard Day's Night, the quartet went on to out-sell the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined: more than 16 million albums between 1966 and 1968.
