About a month after Monkees announced they were postponing their final few tour dates because singer-guitarist Michael Nesmith suffered a health scare, the group finally broke the silence on what happened.
According to The Rolling Stone, Nesmith was rushed to a cardiologist after experiencing shortness of breath. The 75-year-old was then diagnosed with congestive heart failure and needed quadruple bypass heart surgery. "When we got to Lake Tahoe and then the high altitude of Denver, I couldn’t get out of bed and I couldn’t breathe," he told the publication. "It wasn’t agonizing. It was just the business of wanting to take a big, deep breath and not being able to do it."
