I think The Monkees gain a new generation of fans. The TV show has recently been released on Blu-ray and I remember being a new wave of Monkeemania in the 90's which is when I discovered them thanks to pay TV.

The Monkees actually toured Australia last year in December and they released a new album called Good Times which made it to number 20 on the Aria charts so The Monkees have a fan base in Australia.

I think people remember The Lovin' Spoonful for songs like Summer in the City, Daydream, and Do You Believe In Magic? 

I am sure they gain new fans as well but I haven't got my finger on the pulse of the Lovin' Spoonful fan base though.

Spoonful had a coupla dozen truly classic songs between 1965-68 - John Sebastian was quite the witty and sometimes beautiful songwriter.

There's always new generation of Monkees fans! I myself discovered them during their first revival when I was about nine, when the series hit syndication.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

I feel John Sebastian is underrated as a songwriter.
