¿Born in 1942, Peter Tork is an American musician and actor, best known as the keyboardist and bass guitarist of The Monkees.
He began studying piano at the age of nine, showing an aptitude for music by learning to play several different instruments,
including the banjo and acoustic and bass guitars. After college, he moved to New York City, and immersed himself in Greenwich
Village's folk music scene during the first half of the 1960s. While there, he befriended other up-and-coming musicians such
as Stephen Stills. When stills suggested that Tork audition for a new television series about four pop-rock musicians, Tork
landed the role, and became one of the four members of The Monkees, and, well, the rest is (music) history!
During his time with The Monkees, Tork played multiple instruments on the band's recordings, including guitar, bass guitar,
keyboards, banjo and harpsichord. He also co-wrote, along with Joey Richards, the closing theme song of the second season
of The Monkees, "For Pete's Sake". In 1967, Tork made significant musical contributions to both "Daydream Believer" and the
banjo part on "You Told Me." We also helped write the lyrics for "For Pete's Sake" and "Lady's Baby". Six albums were produced
with the original Monkees lineup, four of which went to No 1 on the Billboard chart. In spite of the group's success,
Tork eventually pleaded "exhaustion" from his grueling work schedule and terminated his contract with the Monkees.
A chance meeting with Sire Records executive Pat Horgan led to Tork recording a six-song demo in 1980, on which he sang,
played rhythm guitar, keyboards, and banjo. Horgan produced the six tracks (which included two Monkees covers, "Shades Of
Gray" and "Pleasant Valley Sunday"). The four other tracks were "Good Looker," "Since You Went Away," "Higher and Higher"
and "Hi Hi Babe." Many top artists were present at the recording sessions, including Joan Jett, Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders,
and Tommy Ramone of The Ramones. Then in 1981, Tork he released a 45 rpm single, his first solo record ("I'm Not Your Steppin'
Stone" b/w "Higher And Higher"). Now you can come enjoy all these tracks when you order your rock and roll tickets today!
In 1986, Tork rejoined fellow Monkees Davy Jones and Micky Dolenz for a 20th anniversary reunion tour. Since 1986, Tork
has toured on-and-off with his former band mates and also played with his own bands The Dashboard Saints, The Peter Tork Project
and Shoe Suede Blues, which performs original blues music, Monkees covers, and covers of classic blues hits. The band toured
extensively in 2006-7 following the release of album "Cambria Hotel". In 2011 and 2012 Tork joined his bandmates yet again
for their 45th Anniversary Tour and a tribute to the late Davy Jones. Check out StubHub for current Peter Tork tour dates!
