nakedpersimmon:

As we celebrate Peter’s birthday, NP also remembers Phyllis Nesmith-Gibson, who passed away on this day in 2010 due to complications related to ALS. We mourn the loss of a wife, mother, and woman who epitomized grace, kindness, and generosity of spirit.

Phyllis, you are loved and missed.

NP remembers Samantha Juste, best known to Monkees fans as the first wife of Micky Dolenz and mother of Ami Dolenz, who sadly passed away four years ago today after suffering a stroke. Samantha was a beautiful, classy, kindhearted woman, a trendsetting fixture on the London scene in the ‘60s, and a founding member of the Monkees “First Wives’ Club.” She was loved by all who knew her, and she maintained a lifelong close relationship with both Micky and his family.

Samantha, you will never be forgotten and are truly missed. ♥

chaoskirin:

my takeaway from all this ‘did queen like each other’ discourse:

You can’t fake the relationship you see on TV. You can always tell when people aren’t clicking or when there’s no chemistry.

They may not have always liked each other, but they always loved each other.

It’s the same thing with the Monkees.

Davy was the sassiest sassmouth who could be bitchy toward and about the other guys like no one’s business, and yet he’d give any of them the shirt off his back. He was allowed to talk smack about them, but God help anyone else if they tried to do it. 

The guys have all fought and said not-so-nice things about each other over the years (especially Peter about Mike…*cough*badbreakup*cough*), but they are also the only four people who know what they all went through in the Monkees’ heyday. 

As you said, you can’t fake that chemistry. It was apparent when watching the Monkees on the TV show, and when seeing them in concert. Out of the hundreds and hundreds of guys who auditioned, it was Davy, Micky, Peter, and Mike who had that spark, that energy that gave the Monkees life. People like to make big stinks over Nez “hating” the others, citing his distance toward the Monkees in varying degrees over the years, but it’s the Monkees project/phenomenon as a whole that he’s felt ambivalent about, never the guys themselves. 

Davy, Micky, Peter, and Mike are brothers. They fight, they argue, they bicker, and they love each other like brothers do. That’s all there is to it.

why does everyone say nez has a 9 incher? Like is this something we’ve all collectively assumed or is this actually true?!

First off, anon, if you have any more questions of this particular nature, I beg of you, PLEASE send them to @nakedpersimmon instead. I am… not particularly comfortable discussing this sorta thing except in the vague.

Second, take a close look at the image below.

Yeah.

A very Happy Birthday today to Capricorn (75) and Jones* (72). Davy, you are loved and missed, and we will never forget you. Nez, they didn’t make two of you, and we can surely be glad for that. (You do you, booboo.)

Love, Naked Persimmon. ♥

Legit tearing up watching this right now. It’s somehow become even more poignant with Rose Marie’s passing, and Davy being gone, too…
