Default RIP Peter Tork

Some folks appreciated the Monkees and some did not. Put me in the former.

Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

I liked the music, the TV show not so much.

RIP Peter.

Their radical transformation of Neil Diamond's I'm a Believer was brilliant.
Stuff trumps all. Even tainted stuff.

Sad that to this day 90% of the people you ask seriously believe that none of them were talented musicians. Hard to believe you could be wrong for 50 years and never bother to learn anything about them.

RIP Peter

Was a young teen when they hit the big time, and seeing them at the Hollywood Bowl was my first "real" concert. I spent one summer just a couple of years after their show ended playing pickup softball with Tork and Dolenz at Van Nuys/Sherman Oaks Park. Both wore longer hair, scruffy beards, ragtag jerseys and jeans, and were very very nice and unaffectedly "normal".

The show aired before I was born, but I got to watch it on re-runs when it was on Nickelodeon and I was a kid. It definitely wasn't NOVA, but it was a lot of fun and I can still picture the opening montage with the theme song.
Their movie, "Head," was pretty wild. I watched it in college and had fun, I think that's probably in the ballpark of the target demographic for it...
RIP Peter.
