Monkees star Mike Nesmith dies aged 78 | Music | Entertainment

Micky Dolenz said he was “heartbroken” to lose his friend, who was behind many of the American group’s biggest hits. The Texan-born singer and songwriter, famous for his green woolen hat, has died of natural causes, his family said.

Dolenz, 76, who toured with Nesmith last month, said: “I’m so grateful that we’ve been able to spend the past two months together doing what we love the most – singing, laughing and shticking.”

The Monkees – Nesmith, Briton Davy Jones, Peter Tork and Dolenz – were created for a 1960s sitcom based on the Beatles’ movie A Hard Day’s Night. They competed with the Fab Four at one point, with hits like Last Train to Clarksville, Daydream Believer, and I’m A Believer.

When the band broke up in the late 1960s, Nesmith formed the First National Band and recorded three classic country rock albums.

Nesmith and Dolenz went on tour last year and performed their last show as Monkees in Las Vegas on November 14.
