Musical Interlude: Joanne (1970-92)

 After leaving The Monkees, Mike Nesmith forged a solo career, but only landed one hit on the charts, 1970's "Joanne", which crossed over, as memory serves, between the pop & country charts.

Nesmith also wrote Linda Ronstadt's 1967 hit with the Stone Poneys, "Different Drum". Here, though, is Mike at the 1992 Britt Festival with "Joanne":

In memory of Nesmith, who passed away Friday. Rest in peace.
