So, What Has Michael Nesmith Done Post Monkees?

June 25, 2013 - A lot. Today we talk with the tall wooly-hat wearing Monkee Michael Nesmith about his post Monkee career.

We’ll actually discuss his song-writing pre-Monkees as well and hear the original cover of his song “Different Drum.” Michael has recently finished his first solo tour in 21 years playing music from his original country-rock group The First National Band and his deftly produced solo albums. Papa Nez is also an acknowledged pioneer in music videos credited with the concept that became MTV.
