Description Edit

On a hot summer day in July 1966, the music world was rocked as the fab four, THE BEATLES, entered the studios with their soon to be TV rivals, the pre-fab four, THE MONKEES. Under the guidance of producers George Martin and Don Kirshner, the following track was quickly recorded. However, a legendary fist fight near the end of the mixing process between Ringo and Mickey (drummer envy) led to each band storming out, and the subsequent song was split into 2 singles, released by each group on their own. One still wonders if not for the flying fists would we have ever seen the legendary 8 on the stage at the same time. Paul McCartney said at the time, "Peter Tork was THE true source of inspiration for Sgt. Peppers, and not Pet Sounds."
