So the three surviving members of the Monkees are embarking on a 2012 tour. They're doing 12 dates. That's good for Monkees fans but the timing seems a little off, with Davy Jones dying not that long ago. The tour touts that it's the first time since 1997 they've toured - not sure if that's as a four-piece, or if it's been that long since they appeared with Michael Nesmith?
Not that I'm a big Davy Jones fan - Nesmith was/is my favorite - but his recent death makes the new tour .... um ..... odd. I guess when a musician OD's I can forgive the band for carrying on. But when they die of more natural causes (Davy Jones, Pink Floyd's Richard Wright, etc.), I have more of a problem, I guess.
