Peter Tork was the lovable, wisecracking multi-instrumentalist of the Monkees, the wildly popular 1960s TV (and real-life) rock band. Tork had worked the Greenwich Village folk scene before making his way to California and landing the show after his good friend, Stephen Stills, suggested he audition. As a member of the Monkees, he was frustrated by the producers hiring outside songwriters and musicians to create hit songs for the band. Eventually they were free to craft their own music, and Peter, Mike Nesmith, Davy Jones, and Mickey Dolenz proved they could write and perform timeless pop-rock songs that are heard on the airwaves today. Tork co-wrote the song "For Pete's Sake," with the lyrics "We were born to love one another," that was featured on the Monkees' closing credits during the second season. We remember Peter Tork in this video gallery with our favorite Monkees songs he wrote or sang and scenes from the show.
