To honor Peter Tork, and to mourn his passing, I am reblogging this post of mine from last year.

I have a confession to make.  I like the Monkees.  I have never admitted this to anyone before.  You can understand my shame.  When I was a wee lad my older brother had several of their albums and that was my introduction to them.  I was quite surprised a few years later to find out that not only did they make music, but they had their own TV show!  They were aired as re-runs on Saturday morning when I was a kid.  Of course, they weren’t reruns to me.  They were fresh and new and exciting  and unlike anything I’d ever seen or heard before.  Later on in my life I saw “A Hard Days Night” by the Beatles and I was incensed (incensed!) that they were so blatantly ripping off the Monkees trademark zany antics.  Just goes to show you how subjective history is.

At any rate, because it is…

    • Thanks, Eric.

      The Monkees were such a big part of my childhood. I used to love their TV show, which showed every Saturday morning when I was a kid. I had all of their albums. I’m sure they helped shape my sense of humor.

      I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the Monkees and for Peter Tork.
