The Monkees | Peter H. Thorkelson
5' 9" (1.75 m)
Did You Know?
The longest I've ever gone without playing [guitar] is two or three days. It keeps me going.
The most accomplished musician of The Monkees
, Tork plays 12 different instruments; his choice "depends on what kind of music I'm playing." While producers Tommy Boyce
and Bobby Hart
admired Tork's playing, he was almost never given lead vocals on the Monkees' records. Box-set and CD bonus tracks from the 1980s and 1990s included several rarely-heard Tork songs and vocals.
