Personal Quote:

I'm clearly in my endgame. I mean, we're not talking about deciding to do something else. We're talking about dying. [Laughs] So I don't know. Who knows where that is? That's somewhere . . . that door is coming up. I can't make it out on the horizon just yet. But at a certain point it's going to be time for me to say, "Eh, I think I'll lay down." See more »

Trivia:

Had published several songs through different companies before signing his contracts for The Monkees; Nesmith's "Mary, Mary" had already been a hit for the Butterfield Blues Band. With Nesmith signed to Screen Gems as a songwriter, the company next bought up Nesmith's earlier publishing, so his songs could be used for the Monkees. See more »
