Joanne / Michael Nesmith / 1970
December 30, 1942 – December 10, 2021
I swear I just heard this on the news a couple of days ago?
Have I been in a Time Warp or something?
And I’m certain a few dozen people more notable to History and Arts have passed in the time being, but I always liked this guy.
He was a legitimate Artist, Musician, and Songwriter.
Silver Moon / Michael Nesmith / 1970
Of course, Mike had once been a member of the Monkees –
who I despised in those times as a commercial Group
that was fabricated to fleece Teenyboppers.
There’s some truth in that, but it prevented me from appreciating
anything they did. The years have fortunately softened me in MANY, MANY ways however, (thank GOD) and I can now go back and amend
some of the prejudices of my youth.
One of those prejudices is that I can now appreciate
some of the songs they did.
I wanna be Free
I’m a Believer
Take the Last Train to Clarkesville
OK … moving along now …
just not quite so fast.
