    Default Peter Tork, beloved and offbeat member of the Monkees, dies at 77

    As a kid he was always my favorite. May he RIP

    Peter Tork, a guitarist who became an overnight star in the late 1960s as one of the Monkees, the made-for-television rock band that was a pop-culture sensation, has died. He was 77.

    “It is with beyond-heavy and broken hearts that we share the devastating news that our friend, mentor, teacher, and amazing soul, Peter Tork, has passed from this world,” Tork’s official Facebook account announced Thursday morning.

    The post did not specify when or how he died, though Tork underwent surgery in 2009 to remove cancer from his tongue.

    Tork was a 23-year-old folk guitarist fresh from Greenwich Village when TV executives cast him in the Monkees and promoted the quartet as America's answer to the Beatles, who had been collectively nicknamed the Fab Four.

    Critics derided the Monkees as the “Prefab Four,” but the slapstick NBC comedy series that debuted in 1966 helped make them and their good-time pop a phenomenon.

    Always smile when I hear a Monkees song. Good laughable stuff, and catchy tunes.
    Music for a different generation.

    RIP Peter Tork.

    I'm a few days late as I haven't been around much but in honor of Peter. While the other little girls were going crazy over Davey Jones, I was swooning over Peter.
