NP’s list of things that we love about the Dolenzovitch, in honor of his b’day today:
In the ’60s or in his ’60s, Micky’s always got something cookin’…
Yes, today is truly an auspicious occasion, ladies and gentlemen. Micky Dolenz has finally reached the birthday that he has perhaps waited for his entire life, and we could not be happier for him. What better way to celebrate, therefore, than to re-share with you our post for Micky from our Monkee Man-Whore Index post series, in which Micky was determined to be the #1 Man-Whore of the Monkees in the ’60s! So, without further ado…
Monkee Man-Whore Index Part 4: Micky Dolenz
Oh, Micky…Micky, Micky, Micky. There’s a reason why “Mick” rhymes with “dick,” and that is because that appears to be the part of his body Micky did most of his thinking with in the ’60s (well, and now, but that’s another story). Micky was the very definition of “indiscriminate” during the Monkee years. Indeed, in his autobiography I’m a Believer: My Life of Monkees, Music, and Madness, his depiction of his daily schedule during filming of the TV show illustrates how chasing after female extras (and with any luck, laying them) was built in to his day:
“7:30 A.M. Get called on to the set by the assistant director. Run around like an idiot until noon. Flirt with a cute blonde actress and get her phone number.
[Followed by lunch, more filming, noticing Davy getting the number of the cute blond actress, head to the recording studio, do an interview with a reporter in Tokyo.]
10:30 P.M. Finish recording. Call the cute blond actress. With any luck, I’ve got to her before Davy has.
11:00 P.M. Take cute blond actress out to dinner. Suggest we stop by my place and listen to my new Bill Cosby album. With any luck she agrees.
1:00 A.M. With any luck…
3:00 A.M. Take cute blond actress home. Drive back to my apartment with one eye closed.”
Micky readily admits to his penchant for the opposite sex, saying how he “loves loving women” and was girl-crazy (and still is). He describes the “bevy of beauties” passing through his and Davy’s “portals” when they were living together, and openly admits to the decor of his dressing room (“extra thick shag carpet covered the floorand walls; piles of paisley pillows, and a candle”) serving one particular purpose.
Even prior to living with Davy, Micky acknowledges just how quickly he took advantage of his newfound fame, getting himself “under the covers with every lean/teen/beauty queen I could find." Clearly, for a man who found himself losing his virginity at age seventeen, he decided to make up for it in the long run. Perhaps, though, his enthusiasm might have been a bit too virulent, as Micky once again openly admits to acquiring his first dose of the clap while on tour with Micky and the One-Nighters. This might not be so unsettling were it for the use of the word first, which takes this proclamation in a rather cringe-worthy direction.
Micky, too, is known for his philandering, which was a contributing factor to Samantha ultimately leaving and divorcing him. He describes the first night she spent in his house after moving to the States to be with him, and how it was “peopled by my assorted friends, fellow tripping travelers, hangers-on, and the two stewardesses from the Monkee Express!” It would not be surprising that Peter’s pool parties full of “naked nubile nymphs” would offer an appeal to Micky, and there is no doubt his count went up higher at these events.
There is perhaps one quote that best sums up Micky’s man-whoring, and it is thus: “If it is young and blonde, Micky wants to penetrate it.” We mark Micky up for the sheer and total lack of discrimination that he showed in the ’60s (except, apparently, by hair color), along with his bedding of female extras, boning the Monkee Express stewardesses, and basically anything else with breasts and a pulse. We mark him down for actually admitting to having had at least one STD, and for probably not having protected sex most of the time, the douchepickle.
