RIP: Peter Tork of the Monkees

Maybe something to tear us all away from the political stuff, but Peter Tork passed away today from cancer. I suspect most of you are old enough to remember The Monkees. Some of you may have even liked them. But anyway, RIP. Met him once. A very nice guy.

I liked the Monkees as a kid and actually saw Peter and Micky at the State Theater in New Brunswick about two years ago, and I got to admit it was a lot of fun.

It didn’t hurt that they performed a song by Andy Partridge.

RIP Pete.

I liked the Monkees and their music, and had a college classmate with a family relationship with Michael Nesmith.

Rest in Peace, Peter.
