Monkees’ Michael Nesmith recuperating after heart surgery; plans to resume touring in September


Nesmith, 75, rolled out the First National Band Redux idea early this year with inaugural performances at Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown and then at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. The Troubadour was the venue where Nesmith emceed “hoot nights” in the early and mid-1960s, a fertile time in L.A.’s folk-country-rock music scene that gave rise to the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Linda Ronstadt & the Stone Poneys, Poco and others that blended country and rock into a vibrant new amalgam.
