Peter Tork, endearingly offbeat bassist and singer in the Monkees, dies at 77
RIP... another part of my youth...
Mine too, RIP.
That's too bad. RIP
Pete and Mike were always the cool ones in the band, and the only"real" musicians.
Me too. RIP
I used to rush home from school so I could watch them. I believe Peter Tork was the Monkee who was interested in country music.
I used to watch them after school. They had some great songs that stand up well even today. Then again they had some great songwriters writing for them.

RIP. Now only two Monkees left.
Tough to beat Boyce and Hart.
It was actually Mike Nesmith who was into country. He went on to do some absolutely phenomenal country-rock albums in his immediate post Monkee days.
He did, and his mother invented Liquid Paper. He inherited a lot of money.
I used to watch their T.V. show when I was a kid. Over the years I've read about their trials and tribulations but onstage it seems like they got along pretty well together. In rollingdams link it's noted that Peter was a trained multi-instrumentalist and I'm glad they got a chance to make their own music with their own instruments. It's too bad it's just Mike and Mickey now. R.I.P. Mr. Tork.
