“Loved running into the great Mickey Dolenz from #themonkees outside 30 Rock this morning,” Al wrote in his caption.
Dolenz, 77, the drummer and lead vocalist for the iconic rock band, was visiting NBC studios for an appearance on NY LIVE at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
Roker commented that the last time he had seen Dolenz was for the Monkees’ 45th anniversary tour.
Their last performance on the tour was in July 2011 and is the last surviving member of the band.
His band mate, Michael Nesmith, died in 2021.
The band’s best-known chart was their 1968 hit “I’m A Believer”.
The song was a chart-topper for seven straight weeks.
Neil Diamond wrote the song – Dolenz was the song’s lead vocalist.
The band catapulted the Dolenz to stardom before he went to television and stage.
Commenters on Al’s Instagram post are loving the meeting of the two entertainment giants.
One commenter said: “You guys rock” with a row of hearts.
Another said: “Love him!!! Saw him at Cain Park a few years back … a consummate showman who gives such great energy!!”
Another commented on their appearance: “Looking good.”
