Micky Dolenz, member of The Monkees, sues the FBI for access to the report

Micky Dolenz, who was a member of the band in the 1960s The Monkees, has filed a lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The drummer and singer wants to see all the information that US intelligence has on him and the other members of the band.

In 1967, an FBI informant attended The Monkees concert and wrote a report about it. Its content has been kept secret for a long time. The report was published in 2011, but many passages had been blacked out.
