Because I had so much fun, I had to share a couple videos, one from the original show! And one from the concert.
Papa Genes Blues sung on The Monkees!
Pretty much what we saw Saturday, but this was recorded [Live at the Troubadour]!
I also got an autographed album and a t-shirt from the event, along with a very cool fan pin!! I also got the chance to speak with Christian Nesmith a few minutes too, that’s Mike’s eldest son!
