Very sadly Peter Tork of The Monkees died on February 21, 2019. On this tribute episode of Purple Haze we discuss the life & music of Peter Tork with guests: Anne O’Reilly who founded the Monkeemaniacs fanclub, Rock Brain of the Universe, Glenn A Baker AM who wrote the first biography of The Monkees & extra special guest the late Paul Mazursky who is one of many credited with the inception of The Monkees TV show.

Quote from “Monkees Head & the 60s” Biography

How has a group conceived as a short-lived commodity outlived many more ‘real’ bands by nearly fifty years? Why are The Monkees still important, and what does this tell us about their music, their TV show, and our understanding of popular culture today?”

    Hi, I was lucky enough to see and hear Davy Jones perform years ago at Twin Towns Tweed Heads New South Wales.
    Davy was extremely talented.
    After the show, he came out and spoke to us all and autographed for fans.

  • Howdy folks,
    I really enjoyed the podcast. I wasn’t disappointed when you got around mentioning James Frawley. I worked with him in Australia in 1999. He was here to direct a movie about the 3 Stooges that was produced by Mel Gibson. I was in his ear nearly every day to tell me anything about the Monkees. By the way, he also directed The Muppet Movie.
