Dolenz was one of 400 actors who responded to a trade ad in the fall of 1965 that announced auditions for a new TV show about a rock band. He auditioned by playing and singing Chuck Berry’s legendary hit, “Johnny B. Goode,” and was chosen for the show along with three other actors, Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork. The Monkees’ debut single, “Last Train to Clarksville,” featuring Micky on lead vocals, hit the charts on September 10, 1966 and quickly rose to number one. Two days later, the show debuted on NBC.
The Monkees sold over 65 million units and achieving worldwide success. Their first four albums—The Monkees (1966); More of The Monkees (1967); Headquarters (1967); and Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, & Jones, Ltd. (1967) all reached number-one on the charts and had three number-one singles: “Last Train to Clarksville,” “I’m a Believer” (both featuring lead vocals by Dolenz), and “Daydream Believer.” The group’s first five albums went platinum. They also had a dozen top 20 singles and won two Emmy Awards for their show.
