Oh’, and one thing to know about one of the members of the Monkees. One of them was a millionaire before joining the band. Do you know who it was and why?

It was Mike Nesmith because his mom, who was a typist, made many mistakes on the typewriter. She made so many errors, it caused her to invent something.

In 1951, Bette Nesmith Graham invented the first correction fluid in her kitchen. We know it commonly now as Whiteout or Liquid Paper.

Her son Mike was the primary heir to her fortune upon her death in 1980.
