  •  Yes, and Steven wasn't cute enough (0+ / 0-)

    to be in the Monkees so he told Peter to audition. At least that is how I heard it, back in the '80s.

    •  A story I heard a while back... (0+ / 0-)

      I saw David Bromberg do a solo gig back in the '90s, and he recalled hanging out with Peter Tork in a bar when they were both playing the northeast folkie circuit, and they were talking about this ad they'd seen in a trade publication seeking musicians for a tv show about a rock band.  
      Peter decided to go to the audition, David didn't.  
      I still think David would have been an awesome, but decidedly weird, Monkee.
