There are no words right now... heartbroken over the loss of my Monkee brother Peter Tork," bandmate Micky Dolenz tweeted.

Tork, who played keyboard and bass for the group, was diagnosed with a rare form of tongue cancer in 2009.

The Monkees were huge in the 1960s, with hits like I'm A Believer and Daydream Believer.

A post on Tork's official Facebook page said "the devastating news" was being shared "with beyond-heavy and broken hearts".

It said: "Our friend, mentor, teacher, and amazing soul, Peter Tork, has passed from this world."

A message posted on the band's official Twitter page said that Tork had "passed peacefully" and invited fans to share their favourite memories by adding their comments.


My life was and is music. Like The Beatles, every song, every lyric, by heart (tbh as I get older I need to see the lyrics when doing the songs but at one time I knew them all) Sing them over and over for decades, my little band started playing "Stepping Stone" and "Last Train to Clarksville" a few weeks ago.

Watched the TV show of course but while this was a manufactured band of actors and wannabe musicians, the songs mostly written by great song writers along with their performances and personalities made it a whole lotta fun.
