The Monkees’ Micky Dolenz made an album because a producer ‘kept hounding’ him after they met

In 2012, Dolenz released his solo album Remember. During a 2012 interview with HuffPost, Dolenz discussed the origin of the album. “This album was envisioned to some degree by [producer/arranger] David Harris,” Dolenz recalled. “He came to me, I didn’t go to him.”

“We met years and years ago, and he kept hounding me — ‘I really, really am a fan, I really love your voice, I really think we can do a great album,’” Dolenz added. “Finally, I met up with him and we started chatting, and out of those conversations came this idea of an audio scrapbook. I started telling him these stories, and we decided, this is a great idea for a concept.”
