When it comes to his art, this Texas-born musician does not particularly like to monkey around. Heir to a fortune in office supply money, Mike Nesmith became trapped by fame borne of an audition he attended on a lark. Forced to choose between outward success and his own artistic principles, he chose to listen to the band within his heart.
