Peter Tork


Born - 13 February 1942, Washington, DC, USA
Died - 21 February 2019

The tall, wryly humorous member of the wildly successful Monkees pop group of the mid 1960s, Tork was originally a folk singer whose career went downhill after he left the Monkees at the end of the decade, and became addicted to alcohol and recreational drugs. Later he rejoined the group for nostalgic tours. There were a few films down the years: Wild in the Streets (1968), Head (1968), the shorts Mixed Signals (2001) and Stella's Search for Sanity (2003), then Cathedral Pines (2006), The Junior Defenders (2007) and I Filmed Your Death (2109), his last. Four times married, he died from cancer.
