There, I’ve said it — a shocking confession for a full-grown man. Now I understand that “The Monkees” was a TV show, with actors hired to portray a rock and roll band. They weren’t even allowed to play their own instruments on their first two albums. (Why should they be? I doubt anyone would have trusted Marcus Welby with a scalpel.)
