The last surviving Monkees member is suing the FBI over what he believes is a "secret dossier" on him and his former bandmates.
Micky Dolenz, the 77-year-old former frontman for the popular British-American 1960s band,
filed the lawsuit through his attorney, Mark Zaid, a freedom of information specialist and music fan who told Rolling Stone magazine it would be "fun."
Zaid said he met Dolenz, whose band had hit songs like "I'm a Believer,"
The first stop
Last Train to Clarksville," and "Daydream Believer," through mutual friends.
According to Rolling Stone, Zaid told Dolenz that it would be "fun to see if the FBI had a file on him or his former bandmates
Soon after, Zaid discovered that such a file existed and that a heavily redacted seven-page snippet had been released in 2011.
