Pop Archeaology: "Different Drum" - Stone Poneys (feat. Linda Ronstadt)

One of my all-time favorite rock songs, “Different Drum” was written by Mike Nesmith (of The Monkees fame) in 1965.

It was originally recorded by The Greenbriar Boys (a bluegrass band) and can be found on their 1966 album, Better Late than Never!.   105 more words
