I photographed the Monkees big time for teenybopper magazines in '67 and '68. Every day I would hang out at the TV studio while they filmed another episode of their show. I learned to hunker near the light stands to keep out of the way and watch through my lens until the moment would appear. Here is one of those moments: Frank Zappa is dressed as Mike Nesmith and Mike as Zappa with a wig and false nose. Some lighting man had just made a wisecrack and as I was already looking I was able to catch his instant reply.
