Hey Hey, you're a Monkee

The Times is reporting that audtions are being held in London to find a "Davy Jones" type for the third version of The Monkees. The new group will appear on an NBC TV show modelled on the 1960s hit, according to a passing mention in this story on 19 Entertainment, which is producing the show.

It's funny that no one is remembering the last time they tried to do this in 1987. The New Monkees lasted just six months.

I won't be applying for the latest version of the Pre-Fab Four as I am probably not cute and cuddly enough. But, it will be interesting to see if they can catch lightning in a bottle again.
