    I just heard Peter died as a teen at the time the Monkees were so popular I was a big fan. God rest you Peter you will be missed.

    As a young kid I liked The Monkees. While they weren't quite a "real" band--at least in the early stages--they had some good songs.

    Last Train To Clarksville, Stepping Stone, I'm A Believer (which made a huge fortune for Neil Diamond).

    I know now the story of the first two albums and how they weren't the band I thought they were but in 1967 I was a total fan they were the American Beatles to me.

    They were a non-band that actually turned into a band.
    It was Peter and Michael pushing to be real that created conflict with the show-runners.
    Peter was a real musician...but nicer about it than Mike.

    I always enjoyed their shows.

    Got to meet Mickey and his daughter one time in Del Mar.
    Wish I could have met Peter. He seemed friendly.
    At least he participated in the latter years
