A thoughtful, idiosyncratic memoir from the Monkees icon, songwriter, and music video innovator.

The long, strange journey of Michael Nesmith is as fascinating as it as was fraught—from fleeing Dallas as a young man with his pregnant girlfriend, to gaining international fame as a member of the Monkees, to falling deep into the grips of what he calls Celebrity Psychosis, to finally achieving inner peace and finding a creative wellspring in the teachings of Christian Science. Influenced in equal parts by the consciousness-expanding ambitions of Timothy Leary and the cerebral humor of Douglas Adams, Nesmith spins a spellbinding tale of key life moments centered on “bands,” not just of the musical kind, but also of groups of people committed to the same ideas and principles. Whether these formed around music, art, television—and whether they emerged during creative peaks or delusional depths—they proved powerful forces that helped Nesmith plug in to the energy that has repeatedly taken him into uncharted waters in his quest for a meaningful life.
