Sad news for one of this country’s most famous anonymous people.
Peter Tork is dead.
Damn it, no.
Monkees guitarist Peter Tork dies at 77, reports say
When Davey Jones died a few years back, the news upset me more than the deaths of John Lennon or George Harrison. Can’t explain why, since I was a bigger Beatles fan than a Monkees fan.
Same thing now with Peter Tork.
Maybe it’s just due to my tendency to root for the underdogs
I’m reasonably sure that the episode with the backwards feet aliens is what initially turned me onto sci-fi.
Loved the Monkees.
I think Tom may have hit on that one with mentioning the TV show. I watched it on repeats 2 decades later but you got to hang out with exaggerated very likeable versions of them in their house every week. Although they did make the couple of films the rather acerbic wit of The Beatles kept them more at arms length.
