Stop The Presses! "Davy Jones Gets a Haircut!" 1968 Monkees Teen Mag Article!

Here we go again with another fantabulous Monkees feature from the frantic FLIP magazine! Published in 1968, while the group was filming their oddball film, HEAD, here is the Monkees' mane man Davy Jones taking time out for a bit of a trim! Nothing was beneath the notice of the teen mag producers, nor the rabid legions of Monkees fans! Notice the cigarette in Davy's right hand? It was a little known fact that Davy smoked like a bad Chevy transmission in those days, and most teen magazines carefully air-brushed such offending butts from the pics! Not this time! Also, dig the ad for Davy's pre-Monkees 1965 solo LP! Click to enlarge, follicle fans!

BONUS! Click below to hear the fabulous and rare 1967 flexi-disc, "All About Davy Jones!" These discs were packaged with the Hasbro "Show-Biz Babies" Monkees toys, and are narrated by famous DJ Gary Stevens!
