Michael Nesmith Talks Monkees, Music Videos and the Internet

Recently in town performing with The Monkees, Michael Nesmith is much, much more than just the guitarist for a '60s pop band. Over his lengthy career, Nesmith has worked as a producer, novelist, and actor and is often cited as the person responsible for creating music video.

Via email and in anticipation of performing Wednesday night at the Kessler Theater, Nesmith talked with DC9 about his current "Movies of the Mind" tour, his time in Dallas and how he doesn't plan on attending any reunions at Thomas Jefferson High School.
