CNN LOS ANGELES - A recent study shows that the pre-fab four combo "The Monkees," who built a career on their theme song's assertion that they were "too busy singing to put anybody down" have, in fact, spent much of the last decade putting people down.
Singer Davey Jones was overheard recently in a Los Angeles Starbuck's when the customer in front of him got the last cranberry orange nut muffin. "Go fuck yerself, mate," were the words allegedly spoken by Jones, although he later vehemently denied the claim.
Drummer and singer Mickey Dolenz was disappointed with a recent meal at The Olive Garden and told the waitress to send it back to the kitchen so the chef could "shove it up his ass." Dolenz could not be reached for comment.
Similar stories have surfaced regarding Michael Nesmith, while Peter Tork...who spends some of his time singing, even though he cannot be classified as "too busy," is the only Monkee who seems to have refrained from putting anybody down.
