In loving, eternal memory of Peter Tork, né Peter Halsten Thorkelson, 13 February 1942–21 February 2019. Though he played a simpleton on The Monkees, he was anything but in real life. Peter was a very talented musician, a fellow progressive, a very deep soul, and a wonderful human being.
I’m emotionally gutted. Only half the members of my first musical love are still on Planet Earth. A piece of my childhood has been taken away forever. For this the first year of mourning, I’ll be saying Kaddish every week.
May your beautiful memory be for an eternal blessing, and may your incredible soul have an easy journey through the rest of its existence. I’ll never forget you.
