Happy Birthday Micky Dolenz, here’s The Monkees!

Great man

Growing up, a certain member of the Interestment Family had two heroes. One was Chevy Chase, the other was Micky Dolenz. Two great men, two sparkling wits. Two magnificent haircuts. So it’s with no small amount of pure joy that we celebrate Micky’s 67th birthday today – an appropriate age, given that 67 holds such a firm place in the hippy calendar. Anyway, we divided into two groups – one lot on motorbikes, the others on skateboards – and we raced to see who would get first dibs on gift ideas, and it boiled down to a toss up between a massive grapefruit or TWO great clips from his Monkees days. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Micky Dolenz!
