    Good ol' Upstate New York!
    I hadn't heard this sad news. My condolences to Peter's family and friends. I've never had the pleasure of meeting any of the Monkees but Peter always struck me as a nice guy and I was big fan of their TV show when I was a kid. I'll have to dig out an album or two of theirs and play them tonight.

    I knew Peter Tork and his passing hit me hard, as did the passing of Davy Jones seven years ago. I have great memories of Peter and Davy which I will always cherish.

    I’m glad I got to know Peter in my life, both as a fan and a friend. May his sweet soul be at rest.

    (I wrote a book about The Monkees from my experiences as a fan and there are other fans stories in it. If anyone is interested you can pm me).

    I have always found Tork to be the most attractive one of the group, FWIW. RIP

    From 1982 at The Speakeasy in Greenwich Village. I’m certain I was at this show!

    Wow! A shout out from Paul Stanley- it’s like a mash up of my childhood favorites- the monkees and kiss. How great is the music and monkees (and dims) fandom community! Thank you for posting, RVGleason

    Thanks Mainegal. I think this song well applies to fans of The Monkees, KISS, and Rock/Pop fandom in general.
