The current (July/August 2006) issue of Performing Songwriter Magazine has a cool article called "Bands on the Rerun," which spotlights The Monkees, The Archies, The Banana Splits, and The Partridge Family. Included are interviews with Jeff Barry, Bobby Hart, David Cassidy, and Davy Jones (quite an eye-opener, that one). Check out the Jeff Barry blogpost (link below) for info on where to get your copy.
