Former Monkee dead at 77...
Sad news.
Loved the Monkees TV show.
They also done some great pop songs which have stood the test of time.
RIP Peter.

TV show was great, some of the music was pretty catchy too. RIP Peter

The monkees were part of my childhood. The second album I ever owned (after war movie themes) was The Monkees Greatest Hits. Peter Tork was my favourite because it seemed to me he also had ginger hair cut into the shape of a bell. In truth his was more in the mould of Roger McGuinn whereas mine was more in the shape of whatever bowl my mum could lay to hand. He was the Ringo of the band - a bit more complex than the others. The film Head is actually surprisingly good - almost subversive.

Apparently Peter Tork had health issues which marred his life which is sad.



Not directly connected to the OP but I often wonder how that generation of American hippies turned into such a bunch of c***s. Odd that. To quote the Pistols - ‘never trust a hippie’.
