Michael Nesmith & The First National Band


The First National Band was an American country group led by singer-songwriter Michael Nesmith, formerly of The Monkees. TFNB was an important early proponent of country rock, adapting an idiosyncratic, genre-busting aesthetic. The group consisted of Nesmith (guitar, vocals), Red Rhodes (steel slide guitar), John Ware (bass guitar), and John London (drums). The group had two successful singles, "Joanne" and "Silver Moon", peaking at #21 and #42 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively.
