    Make a buck?

    Dolenz said in a 2007 interview on the Roe Conn radio program that, while inspiration did come from The Beatles, the band's image was not meant to be a ripoff of them. He said that The Beatles were always depicted as superstars with legions of fans, wheras The Monkees were always depicted as unsigned and struggling to make a buck.
    What does it mean by "mae a buck"?

    Correct. A "buck" is slang for a dollar in AmE. "Make a buck" means to earn money.
