Eric Lefcowitz on WABC Radio
In the wake of Eric Lefcowitz’s publication of an updated version of his book, Monkee Business, and certain pieces of “shocking” information contained therein, we are reposting the audio of statements that Mr. Lefcowitz made on a radio show only days after Davy’s death last year.
It is important to note that we cannot even call this an interview, because Mr. Lefcowitz actually called in to this radio show that was doing a retrospective on Davy. He called in and, for over six minutes straight, used the show as a platform to promote himself as “the foremost Monkees historian,“ while trash-talking Davy, the other Monkees, and everything else under the sun. Ultimately, he showed himself to be little more than a dirt-dishing, spineless opportunist who has no respect for the dead and who seems to delight in heartlessly savaging the reputations of the Monkees.
It is with all of this in mind that we urge everyone to review the statements made by Mr. Lefcowitz in the new edition of his book, It is said that within every piece of gossip there is a kernel of truth, and we believe that kernel does exist in his book, but is buried far beneath a mountain of sensationalism. It is for this reason and the audio above that we are taking what is written in the book with a very, very large grain of salt. If there truly is information about the 2011 tour to be known or uncovered, we only hope that it will eventually come from a much more reputable source.
