For me, the criteria for becoming a very favorite musical group of mine, is to have 10 or more songs that i really like and The Monkees have around 20 of them and although its a rather difficult choice, heres my favorite song by them and its called For Petes Sake, the closing credits theme song for the second season of their television show (*-*)



Quote: "After a well timed fist through the wall of a hotel suite and many fevered negotiations, music supervisor Don Kirschner was out and the band hit the studio by themselves"

"With the help of producer Chip Douglas, the band spent some time learning how to be a band and set about recording what turned out to be a dynamic, exciting and impressive album"

"Headquarters doesn't contain any of the group's biggest hits, but it does have some of their best songs, including Peter Tork's shining moment as a songwriter, "For Pete's Sake"

Yes this is actually The Monkees with Jimi Hendrix like wow (*=*)

Jimi opened up for the Monkees a few times. A real odd pairing that didn't work very well according to sources.

Quote: In one of the strangest pairings in rock and roll history, The Jimi Hendrix Experience was the opening act for several cities during the 1967 U.S. summer tour.

Hendrix joined The Monkees as the tour officially commenced on July 8 in Jacksonville, Florida, with Hendrix continuing to appear through dates in Miami, Florida on July 9; Charlotte, North Carolina on July 11; and Greensboro, North Carolina on July 12. He departed after three shows at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in New York City on July 14, 15, and 16.

Hendrix, a star in England but relatively unknown in his native United States, was trying to gain notoriety in America. As the New York Times noted in 2006, "The Monkees wanted respect, and Hendrix wanted publicity." With the goal of attaining a mainstream hit in the United States, the Experience agreed to join the tour.
