Michael Nesmith of The Monkees TV Show, Dies Aged 78?

"Michael Nesmith, one of the stars of The Monkees, a 1960s TV comedy series about a rock quartet modelled after the Beatles, has died of natural causes at the age of 78."
Oddly enough, Michael Nesmth was in the Beatles 'A Day in the Life' film clip above, and it was only by reading the news today (although on a computer screen) that I found out about Mike's death.
And oddly enough, yet again, Mike passed away 8 days short of the anniversary of Tara Browne's passing ... if you can trust the date on Mike's IMDB web-page which says he passed on
December 10th, 2021.
The death of Browne is supposedly captured in the song
"A Day in the Life" by The Beatles, which was released on their 1967 album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Synchromysticism is a funny sport/game I think ... or imagine ... as the footy club I've followed for the majority of my life the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks, entered the NRL in 1967, the same year the Beatles released 'Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart's Club Band':-)
And 10 years after a stage musical called 'West Side Story':-)
All the world is a stage musical brought to the cinema screen, as one great scriptwriter once said in a script he wrote, I think?-)
Why does that date ring a bell?-)
Stephen Sondheim, Broadway composer of West Side Story, dies aged 91
Look's like the earliest I can see the new 'West Side Story' will be in 7/8 days time in Australia:-)
Just not enough days in the week sometimes I think:-)

UPDATE: December 17th, 2021
In hindsight I think it was rather synchromystic that Allison would interview Micky Dolenz almost exactly one year from the day to Micky becoming the last remaining Monkee on this side of the
