When Davy Jones tragically passed away in February, many Monkees fans presumed it was the end of the group. Even members of the band thought it was probably over. “There is a faint chance we’ll continue,” Peter Tork told Rolling Stone. “I don’t know whether we could structure something without Davy. I had a couple of thoughts, but I don’t know if they’re workable.”
What he didn’t count on at the time was former Monkee Michael Nesmith returning to the fold. With the exception of a short European run of dates in 1997, Nesmith hasn’t participated in any of the Monkees many reunion tours since their split in 1971.
As Rolling Stone announced this morning, he’s had a change of heart and the three surviving members of the band will hit the road in November. We spoke with Nesmith via e-mail about the reunion tour and his other future plans.
