What Was Michael Nesmith's Net Worth When He Died?

Throughout the 70s and early 80s, British viewers were able to watch ‘The Monkees’ TV show, laugh at the zany adventures, sing along with the catchy pop songs.

The members were distinct: the charismatic and diminutive singer (Davy), the wacky drummer (Micky), the innocent, slightly simple blonde (Pete) and the serious, beanie-wearing musician, Mike.

The show was a success but short-lived lasting just two seasons, September 1966 – March 1968.

The guys were actors, they had auditioned for a TV comedy about musicians yet when the public learnt they didn’t play their instruments on recordings, there was a violent backlash.

Mike Nesmith actually was a musician, and The Monkees demanded to be allowed to prove that they could play, and wanted to be taken seriously.

From 1969 Mike began planning a solo career which including writing, performing, producing and pioneering early music videos.

Here’s my favourite Monkees song, ‘Daydream Believer’ with Mike on acoustic guitar.
