Ward Sutton recalls an ’80s Monkees revival tour for SPIN with touching detail. Actually, this is a rerun of an old Sutton cartoon, we’re told.
In addition to being a nice tribute to Davy Jones, we’re impressed with a) how quickly Sutton turned this around after Jones’ sad death yesterday and even more impressively, b) how quickly he found a ticket stub from 1986. An organized hoarder? We must take notes.
