Peter Tork - Mundell Music wishes him well
It has been reported that Ex- Monkee Peter Tork has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in his neck and head. He is apparantly very positive and begins treatment soon (according to the bbc news site). We met Peter when he played 2 shows for us at The Inn at Lathones in June 2008. The event made national news and David Mundell appeared live on the BBC News as a result of the publicity. Peter told stories from the hedonistic days of being a Monkee and how hard Mike Nesmith's mum worked with her "liquid paper" invention - mixing it in the family bath and touting it door to door. It would be wonderful to have him play again for Mundell Music, he is planning to fulfill dates with his band Shoe Suede Blues. We, as a very small part of the music industry wish him well on the road to recovery.
