I was listening to Mike McConnell on WGN radio this morning and he was interviewing a guy who wrote a book about the Wrecking Crew, the LA session musicians who played all the music for the Monkees and most of the other popular groups of that time. Weird, they spoke at length about the Monkees- not knowing about Davy’s death yet.
