Biography

American musician, songwriter, actor, producer, novelist, businessman, and philanthropist, best known as a member of the pop rock band the Monkees and co-star of the TV series The Monkees (1966-1968). The group was manufactured in 1965 by TV producers Bert Schneider and Bob Rafelson, who put the four young men together for a weekly series, patterned on the irreverent humour and style of The Beatles. They had a few hit singles, "Last Train to Clarksville," and "I'm a Believer." Later, Nesmith formed his own group, (Mike Nesmith and) the First National Band, which had one hit song, "Joann" in 1970.

His mother Bette Nesmith Graham, a businesswoman and the inventor of Liquid Paper, died on 12 May 1980, aged 56, in Richardson, Texas. As her only son, Michael Nesmith inherited half of his mother's estate of over $50 million.

In the 1980s, Nesmith began to get involved with film production. He was an executive producer of the cult film Repo Man (1984). In 1981, Nesmith won the first Grammy Award given for Video of the Year for his hour-long television show, Elephant Parts. He published a first novel in 1999, "The Long Sandy Hair of Neftoon Zamora."

On 1 February 1999, a federal jury in Los Angeles found the PBS guilty of fraud in a deal it had made with Nesmith and ordered the network to pay him $46 million. In 1990, his company, Pacific Arts, established a home video library but when his company ran into financial trouble, PBS acquired the rights to his programs surreptitiously.

He married Phyllis Ann Barbour in 1963, and they had four children before divorcing in 1972. In 1976, he married Kathryn Bild. In 1988, following the ending of this second marriage, he met Victoria Kennedy and they were married in April 2000. They separated in 2011 and Kennedy filed for divorce.
