The Monkees

“It is with deep sadness that I remember the passing of Michael Nesmith. We shared many trips and projects together over 30 years, culminating in a farewell tour of the Monkees that concluded just a few weeks ago, ”Sandoval said.

“That tour was a true blessing for many. And in the end I know that Michael was at peace with his legacy, which included songwriting, producing, acting, directing and so many innovative ideas and concepts. I am sure that the brilliance that he captured will resonate and offer the love and light that he has always moved towards. ”

Paying tribute, Midge Ure described him as “an underrated, talented musician, songwriter and video artist”.

Nesmith was raised by a single mother, a secretary who enjoyed painting. As electric typewriters became common, it became more difficult to correct mistakes, so he created a painting at home that matched his writing paper in his office. Later the invention became liquid paper, known in the UK as Tipp-Ex.
