Davy Jones revealed why The Monkees were ‘very lucky’ in the U.S.

Jones was the only member of The Monkees who was originally from England. During a 1999 interview with E! Entertainment, Jones discussed his feelings about the U.S. “We’re very lucky because we got newscasters, and radio stations, and people all around this country, that grew up with The Monkees you know,” he said. “And it’s a country that embraces entertainmeners and talent unlike England and some other places. They always want you to prove yourself over and over again. Once you touch the hearts of the Americans, its stays with them.”
