Aidin Vaziri | Davy Jones, not the tentacle-faced monster from “Pirates of the Caribbean” but Marcia Brady’s favorite Monkee, will return to the San Francisco stage at the Rrazz Room Friday through next Sunday. Even though the 64-year-old Englishman has spent the past few years tending to his large stable of horses in rural Pennsylvania and getting married for a third time, to a Telemundo star half his age, he still likes to trot out classic hits like “Daydream Believer” and “Pleasant Valley Sunday.” We caught up with Jones to find out how married life is treating him, how he feels about Justin Bieber and whether he anticipates ever getting back together with the old primates, Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork and Michael Nesmith.
Q: Any hopes for getting the Monkees back together?
A: We’re talking about doing a tour next year with the Monkees.
Q: I thought you hated those guys.
A: I know, but all of the sudden they’re talking about going out. Micky, Peter and I talk. They’ve gone through a couple of changes over the last few years. Mike is hard to pin down on dates. My thing is I just don’t want to get onstage with a bunch of old guys. But they’re talking about something else. They’re talking about a show with dialogue and all this stuff.
Q: You mean like the Abba thing?
A: The problem with that was, once I saw the Abba thing I was like, “Get me out of here!” But it might be different with the Monkees because they’re funny guys.
