showbiz life for Micky Dolenz. Exactly twenty-five years' ago he was doing
a screen test for the part of a seven year old Mexican urchin who had been
gifted with a gigantic bull from the planet Saturn....

evaluate his emotional stability "Micky is looney", repeated the shrink.
Then, whilst reading architecture at college, NBC was casting a new TV
show about a 'zany' Rock and Roll group, and Micky got the part of 'Micky
the drummer' in the 'zany' Rock and Roll group with was subsequently called
The Monkees. During the next three years he sang, danced and goofed
his way through the smash TV series, jumped into Hollywood Bowl pool, and
sold over twenty million records.
Since The Monkees, Micky has gone on to expand his talents in many other areas; from directing and producing, to playing with his laser. He started his own production company, and broke his arm Hang-gliding. Along with Davy Jones, he starred in Tom Sawyer at the Sacremento Civic Light Opera and just before coming to London to appear in The Point they concluded an international night-club and concert tour.
