OTD February 11 - Monkees
25 / 44
NBC Television

1967: Due to increasing public furor over the Monkees being a "manufactured" band, the group issues a statement saying they will hereby play their own instruments on all new releases. The group, which already was performing as a band live on stage, would stick to the promise for one album, 1967's "Headquarters." After that album, the Monkees started using a mixture of themselves playing along with other musicians, but they still wrote, sang, produced and played on their remaining albums.
