Micky Dolenz Monkees Around With Trivial Matters

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Micky Dolenz will always be remembered as a member of the Monkees but, these days, he’s dealing with more trivial matters – like rock trivia.

Dolenz has just authored a new book, Micky Dolenz’ Rock ’n Rollin’ Trivia (Square One Publishing), that includes more than 900 bits of minute data about music history.

It wasn’t a trivial pursuit for Dolenz, who admits he’s never been a big trivia buff when it comes to entertainment “because I’m living it” but had a team of researchers who “helped me remind me of the things I’ve done and the events.”

Naturally, the book does mention the time Dolenz helped Jimi Hendrix get an opening spot on the Monkees tour only to be taken off the bill after he shocked fans by burning his guitar.

Although the book features lots of rock trivia, Dolenz admits the most enjoyable part about putting together the book was writing essays detailing his personal memories of meeting the Beatles.
