    At least it’s not a restraining order.

    Remember it, not spoiling it.

    I had no idea members of boy bands could write.

    @Kim Metzger

    Boy “bands” (at least by what they are considered today) don’t usually play any musical instruments, either.

    Well, we know they can’t write music, at the very least…

    music implies tune, rhythym, and poetry. Most of them can get the beat….I’ve yet to see anything else beyond that that make s sense or has any pleasing tone.

    & @Kim M. I remember a “boy band” from my misspent youth. They could write, sing a little, and were a phenomenon. 50 years ago last week: No one stacks up to them, but my parents said the same things you’re saying. You never know.
    (I refer, of course to The Beatles)

    Sorry … no comparison.


    I guess the closest thing to a “boy band” from that era would be The Monkees – manufactured by the studio for a TV show.


    … who can name other shows in which Micky Dolenz appeared … and for bonus points name the TV show he produced and directed n the UK ?

    Dear Dukedoug, think I remember a young Dolenz from a Saturday morning show “Circus Boy,” but have not checked that on IMDB. In all fairness, Nesmith was a pretty good musician and songwriter despite his silver-spoon background, not exactly the standard boy-bander. Maybe The Archies is closer.

    Don’t forget Peter Tork. He’s an accomplished instrumentalist, even to this day, with his band Shoe Suede Blues.

    When my older daughter was 6 (she’s 11 now), she wrote a letter to Taylor Swift. At the last moment I included a simple #10 SASE, not expecting anything in return. A few months later, she received a letter in return! While the body of the letter was a computer-printed form letter (very Tayloresque in its wording), across the top, in Sharpie, was, “Dear Deborah, thank you very much! Love you, xoxo, Taylor”. My daughter’s first reaction was “SHE SPELLED MY NAME RIGHT!”, and that letter is still one of her prized possessions.

    Circus Boy. He was in Circus Boy. I used to have one of the books from the series….

    I remembered him as Corky on Circus Boy but don’t know about producing any UK show.
    .
    However, did you know both Dolenz and Nesmith auditioned for the role of Fonzie on Happy Days,but didn’t get it because they were too tall?

    To call The Beatles a “boy band” is an insult to The Beatles and you might as well be relieving yourself on John and George’s graves.

    “Pop Rock Band " is way more accurate.
