Peter Tork was the last Monkee into the group and the first to leave but it was still a life-changing event for him. Since then he's played in a number of groups, done a couple of re-union tours with the other Monkees as well as faced a variety of health problems including addiction and cancer. We talk to him about how those two years in the 1960s changed his life and what he's been doing since. He'll be playing at the Henderson Events Plaza on April 15 with his group, the Shoe Suede Blues.
