The Monkees’ Micky Dolenz Would Like a Word With the FBI

The group's last surviving member is suing the FBI after they failed to hand over band's J. Edgar Hoover-era FBI file

WHEN THE MONKEES launched their inaugural tour in 1967, they played to throngs of screaming teenagers

These messages and pictures were flashed of riots, in Berkley, anti-U.S. messages on the war in Vietnam, racial riots in Selma

 Alabama, and similar messages which had unfavorable response[s] from the audience

This tiny portion of the band’s FBI file was released to the public a little over a decade ago

The 77-year-old musician is hoping to see the rest of the file after failing to get his hands on it via a Freedom of Information Act request
