Well, from the relationships and dalliances that we know of, all of the Monkees clearly have a variety of ages in the women they’ve dated. But of the confirmed girlfriends/significant others that each Monkee has had—and let’s be honest, we could all use a color-coded flow chart at this point, though it would probably look something like this:
“By all accounts, it doesn’t make sense.”
—the two Monkees with the greatest age gaps between them and their girlfriends/significant others have been Nez (he married Victoria Kennedy in the year 2000, when he was 58 and she 32, giving them a 26-year age gap) and Davy (he married Jessica Pacheco in the year 2009, when he was 64 and she was 32, giving them a 32-year age gap).
So we would say that the largest age gap between the Monkees and their girlfriends/wives has been in the 30-40 year range. Hope that answers your question!
Unexpected flea market score: A stack of 60’s teen magazines focusing mainly on The Monkees. Impossibly stoked you guys. #PleasantValleySaturday #NesmithOverload 🙊🙈🐵🙉

Hi there! Well, we’re not exactly sure what you mean by “candid” (though we are aware of the story in question). Although that story comes from a personal source, we are not aware of a specific source online that has Monkees stories. We do have a few tags here on the NP Tumblr that contain Monkee shenanigan stories from over the years, however. Your best bet is the #groupie tales tag, the #hugs not drugs tag, and the #the monkees didn’t smoke pot what are you saying tag. Hope that helps!
Friendly reminder that in 1975 Micky Dolenz was in the movie Linda Lovelace for President and played a nearsighted bus driver who was afraid of a naked woman now that’s acting kids A+ four stars Oscar nomination time.
That makes me sad you don’t feel like part of a group when I regard you as part of a group and see you as one of the significant people who got me into the Monkees fandom :(
That surprises the hell out of me. I mean, not you specifically, but that anyone considers me part of any group. I have never felt like a part of the Tumblr Monkees fandom, just on the fringes of it and two of my close friends are incidentally big parts of the fandom. hahaha Maybe because I rarely take part in discussion and sort of do things alone (like posting scans when I was at GTM), I tend to feel insignificant or invisible or something or another. Then again I’m one of those people who are constantly surprised that someone I’ve met 20 times remembers who I am. It’s next to impossible for me to feel like I belong anywhere.
I wouldn’t have said it if I didn’t mean it :) You see, you view yourself completely different to how others view you. When I first got into the Monkees and was lurking all the blogs on here, it was PJ, NP and you that I looked up to most. I thought you were all so cool and when you each started talking to me or reblogging my posts or whatever it would make me so excited! I really loved GTM and I had so much respect for what you did. I thought your scans were AMAZING. And you *have* gotten involved in discussions and stuff, a lot more than many others who are a part of the Monkees fandom. You’ve always been about quality over quantity.
But Monkees aside, you’re one of my favourite blogs (I actually said this in the ET Whatsapp chat earlier). I only check a handful of blogs daily, and yours is one of them. You’re a good friend of Meg’s, and Meg is a good friend of mine, and I regard you as a friend too (even if you don’t regard me as one, I see you as a friend LOL, and again I said this earlier too). So it surprises me to see you say you don’t feel a part of something, when I (and I know many others) most definitely see you as a part of something.
Gotta agree with Bess here, Beth! We definitely see you as part of the Monkees fandom, too. There’s no way Tumblr or any of our pages would be the same without your teen mag collection and scans, and your mix of intelligent-sarcastic commentary on various Monkees topics and the fandom in general is some of the most enjoyable and refreshing to read. Being in the fandom doesn’t mean participating in every single discussion every single time…it means contributing what you can, when you can. (As thank-your-lucky-stars said…quality over quantity!) So yes…we always have and always will think of you as a member of the Monkee family here. :)
