PETER TORK WITH STEVE GODDARD INTERVIEW

Peter Tork was the friendliest of the four Monkees I met. Davy was great to his fans, Mike was quiet and reserves, Micky was, well, just Micky, but Peter was the most down to earth. A a few weeks before they came to Mesa, Arizona in August 2013, I spent the good part of an hour on the phone with him. The night of the show, my wife Janey joined me backstage for a couple of hours before they went on stage -Peter was the only one who made himself accessible.  He was funny, real, in the moment, down to earth…there was nothing not to like about Peter Tork.

Here’s the first half of our conversation and I’ll post the second half over the weekend.
Monkees fans are mourning the loss, but I know he’s at peace now, and there’s comfort in that…
…enjoy…
