It's looking as though fans are in for a special treat once the upcoming "The Monkees Present: The Mike & Micky Show" hits the road next month. Mike Nesmith and Micky Dolenz shed light on the rehearsal process for the upcoming tour, which will be slightly different from the usual "meat and potatoes" Monkees concert. Once the group's last tour wrapped featuring just Dolenz and Peter Tork -- Nesmith, who had sat out of the dates supporting the band's comeback album, Good Times, but filled in for Tork at several shows -- once again reconsidered his role when Tork begged off any future band commitments. Nesmith told Rolling Stone, "I've always had a certain distance from Peter. I don't really know what he's doing or what he's thinking. . . I realized if there was going to be any more Monkees music played live that Micky and I were going to have to do it. . . I felt there may be some creative fun to be had here."
Regarding Tork not taking part in the upcoming dates, Micky Dolenz explained, "He told me a couple of years ago that he wanted to pursue his dream project, which is the Lead Belly album. He worked on it for a long time and he's going to tour with (his band) Shoe Suede Blues. My understanding was that Peter was just not available for this tour. That's his business and you'd have to ask him for more about it."
During Saturday night's (May 19th) concert in Portland, Oregon, Paul Simon briefly forgot the lyrics to his 1990 The Rhythm Of The Saints song, "The Cool, Cool River," and in a hysterical bout of self-humiliation, he forced himself to sing one of his classic tunes that he absolutely hates -- the 1966 Simon & Garfunkel classic, "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)".
Ultimate Classic Rock posted that Simon told the crowd: "Because I made a mistake and forgot the lyrics to that song, I’m going to penalize myself. I’m going to sing one of my songs that I loathe. This will teach me, because I just -- I hate this song.”
Although Paul Simon's earliest tunes are still beloved and performed, he admits that he has little in common with the young man who wrote them.
