And finally, there's - (said humbly) me.
Every other week, we are asked to blog about a musical theme. The other weeks are free weeks, including today. I am going to devote my post today to the late Peter Tork of the Monkees, who died on February 21 at the age of 77 of a rare cancer that affects the tongue, and Peter Frampton, who disclosed earlier this week that a degenerative muscle disease will soon be ending his musical career.
Tork was the oldest member of the Monkees, who started out as a made-up band for a TV show and ended up as a true band. Tork played several instruments, and sang.
How about piano? Tork plays the intro to one of my favorite Monkees song, Daydream Believer, from 1967.
Banjo? Yes, please, in "You Told Me".
"Your Auntie Grizelda" was the first song to feature Peter Tork on lead vocals. Here, he performs it live in 2015.
As for Peter Frampton, although he has recorded more recently, I still love his oldie songs, such as Do You Feel Like We Do, here performed live in 2018.
And, also from the recent past, a live performance of "Show Me the Way".
Join me and the other members of #MusicMovesMe next Monday, same time, same place.
