On March 16th, AXS TV Pays Tribute to THE MONKEES with Encore Presentation of “Rock Legends: The Monkees” in Remembrance of Peter Tork

Rock Legends: The Monkees will air on Saturday, March 16 at 7pE for fans that missed it this week.

As a multi-talented musician proficient in guitar, bass, keyboards, banjo, and harpsichord, among others, Tork rose to fame in the 1960s as a member of the rock band The Monkees. Tork starred as the loveable bassist in the hit sitcom following the band’s adventures in rock. Putting his vast musical talent on full display, Tork co-wrote the theme song “For Pete’s Sake,” as well as “Lady’s Baby”; crafted the memorable banjo part on “You Told Me”; and—most notably—performed the iconic piano introduction on the band’s signature hit “Daydream Believer.” Following his time with The Monkees, Tork collaborated with George Harrison, embarked on a solo career, and appeared in several guest roles on popular series such as Boy Meets WorldTh Heaven The King Of Queens, and Wings. He would continue to perform with The Monkees throughout the years, in various reunion concerts and tours. Tork passed away  on February 21, at the age of 77.

Rock Legends: The Monkees chronicles the band’s improbable rise from fictional act to chart-topping rock sensations, on the strength of catchy songs and innovative marketing. The program features interviews with noted experts and critics, reflecting on the quartet’s musical legacy and the indelible mark they left on pop culture, and also includes a selection of original music videos.

Then, on Saturday, March 16, at 6:30pE, AXS TV presents The Monkees in their first-ever live televised performance. Originally filmed in 2016 during the band’s 50 TH Anniversary Tour, the historic evening captures original members Tork and Mickey Dolenz at the top of their game, as they blaze through unforgettable hits such as “Last Train To Clarksville,” “Papa Gene’s Blues,” “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone,” “Daydream Believer,” and more, in front of a lively crowd.
