Brought together for a TV show to try and capitalize on the success of the Beatles, the Monkees EXPLODED on to the cultural landscape not only on the screen and but the radio as well!!! Today we mourn the loss of bassist/singer Peter Tork who passed away at the age of 77. A cause-of-death hasn’t been given yet but he was diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma, a rare cancer affecting his tongue, back in 2009.
Here is one of their biggest hits from their career. Such a fun, lovable group who have endured the test of time. R.I.P. Mr. Tork.
