Michael Nesmith is SO much more than just a Monkee. Prior to The Monkees, he was a musician and singer-songwriter. After the Monkees, he was also a record, television, and film producer. He was a media visionary. He created the first music video, which helped launch MTV. He helped develop the concept of home video and created the first company to distribute home videos to the consumer market. He's an author. He's the jack of all media trades. So with that in mind, let's show our appreciation for Papa Nez!
