StandingBear (inactive) Mike Nesmith/Michael Blessing: Well? (25) Mike Nesmith/Michael Blessing: Well? 19 Oct 00

Granted, the Monkees were a fabricated pop TV show group. Granted, Mickey Dolenz had to learn the drums (he's a singer and a fine guitarist by nature). Sure, Davy Jones is a prick (I have proof of his lousy attitude towards fans). Sure, Peter Tork can't hardly get arrested (he is a fine guitar and banjo picker, though).

But what about Mike Nesmith? I have heard some of the recordings he made as Michael Blessing; folk music for sure. Down to earth, BEAUTIFUL ballads/story songs. He is a fine lyricist and a SUPERB guitar (6 and 12) and banjo picker (Scruggs or clawhammer)!!

Can anyone else besides me POSSIBLY have gotten past the wool hat and heard some of the TALENT under there?

Different Drum (hit for Ronstadt; Nesmith wrote it) What Am I Doin' Hanging 'Round?; Nesmith hit for Monkees

...there are more (I don;t have a CD or book in front of me).

Come on, tell me I'm not alone in this!!

Peace on you,
