"It's truly incredible, how his attitude seems to have changed. He PERFORMED with the remaining Monkees, something I swear he said he would never do again after the '80s. It is baffling. As for the meeting, he was so gracious and answered…"
"Harry, I was moved to buy that song based upon your post. And Anna, it is WAY cool to meet Mr. Nesmith. In all of my readings, he was very reclusive and didn't make public appearances...and damn sure didn't reaffirm his former…"
