Critics might have dismissed the actor-musicians of The Monkees as musical imposters, but there was no denying their massive commercial success. (They outsold The Beatles for a period of the 1960s.) Besides, time has a way of softening even the harshest spotlight. So just try to resist singing along on this 50th anniversary celebration. Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork, two of the four original Monkees, are out performing hits such as “I’m a Believer” and “Last Train to Clarksville.” Tork recently joked to CBS, “We’ll tour until one of us drops. Then the other will go on as the Monkee.”
