I hate to make this post but today IS April Fools Day. So what better way to celebrate Fools Day then by posting a short video of four fools making fools of themselves in the California desert dressed up in Foreign Legion uniforms. This is The Monkeys from 24 October 1966 (Episode 7 “Monkees in a Ghost Town”). The song is “Tomorrow’s Gonna Be Another Day”.
I did find out something interesting about Micky Dolenz. It seems that in 1968 he was about to be drafted for the U.S. Army and most likely sent to Vietnam. Instead he quickly joined the Navy and became a Navy SEAL and served two combat tours in the Mekong Delta with SEAL Team 3. He remained with The Monkeys the whole time and did what he could with them while on leave and recovering from several wounds in stateside hospitals.
Really. He did.
