We all knew the Monkees didn’t play their own music but I never knew until I watched this documentary exactly how many musicians were replaced in the studio by these musical masters. They were also known as The First Call Gang and The Clique.
Looks like you can watch the entire documentary on YouTube if you’re okay with commercials. I highly recommend it particularly if you’re old, like me, and know every one of these tunes! The in depth profiles of all the musicians is really insightful. The story behind the tune sort of thing which I love, as does any music lover.
