(Gibson) In an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone, Michael Nesmith has been remembering Davy Jones and the Monkees experience.
In Nesmith's opinion, Jones and The Monkees were synonymous. "For me David was The Monkees," he said. "They were his band. We were his side men. He was the focal point of the romance, the lovely boy, innocent and approachable. Micky was his Bob Hope. In those two – like Hope and Crosby – was the heartbeat of the show."
Nesmith didn't feature in the last Monkees tour but the country-rock pioneer still plays concerts and has been busy developing a virtual world music project at his Videoranch website. more on this story
