This article does not change my mind about Michael Nesmith.
An artist and a performer? Yes. But he still seems like a pretentious pain in the ass to me.
It's sad that the death of Davy Jones has been the thing to rekindle the fading interest in the Monkees as a "band" or as a show experience. Somewhere along the way, Nesmith seems to have equated himself with John Lennon. Whether that is valid or not is a matter of opinion.
