    Not any more. And, apparently, he was not a nice person. After watching DW News, all I could think was "Leave to the Germans to idolize this imitation of a human".

    Peter Tork, keyboardist and bass guitarist of ‘60s pop group The Monkees, has died Thursday. He was 77.

    His death was confirmed by his sister Anne Thorkelson, The Washington Post reported. In 1999 Tork had been diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma, a rare cancer affecting his tongue.

    Another iconic shaper of our musical consciousness gone. This nonsense has got to stop! No more of this dying stuff, please.

    49 is too young to die.

    But I myself have never heard of him, his group, their seven Number 1 albums, or any of the other performers mentioned in the article, except for the Chemical Brothers.

    You might, or might not, have encountered their music in some video games, TV shows and movies.

    In an interview with FHM in 2015, he said: "I’m not saving up for anything. I’m cashing it all now.

    "I’ve always had this thing inside me that, when I’m done, I’ll kill myself.

    "I swear to God that’s not suicidal – it’s definitely a positive thing. The moment I start s******* the bed is when you’ll see me on the front of a bus.

    "I just want to look back and know that I’ve lived what I consider a fulfilled life."

    Very little punk got through to me. Ian Dury, Stranglers, that's about it.

    I dunno. Is Joan Jett considered punk?

    I recall one particularly memorable performance from a six hour rave during the chemically excessive ‘90s. Most of the audience were taking ecstasy. The band waited for an hour or two before taking to the stage, so by then nobody was still coming up. I hadn’t anything to drink or smoke by that point, but I dropped a couple of “speckled doves” (ecstasy tabs spiked with smack) and I was nicely buzzing by then. The lights came on and the the band took to the stage without Keith and stared performing Jericho. With the opening chants of “the hordes of Jericho, the hordes of Jericho” being blasted out at deafening volume, just as the bass beats began to drop, Keith leapt into stage wearing a straight jacket and bounded around like a maniac. It was a spectacular opening to an incredible set. I dropped some acid on top of the ecstasy during it and that kicked in before the end. A couple of hours after that I was manically smoking dope in a futile endeavour to try to somehow begin the descent and simultaneously take some of the edges off it (not that any edges were particularly clearly defined by then!). Something like 150 members of the audience were hospitalised before it all ended. Ah, the ‘90s! You really had to have been there for any of that to make any kind of sense whatsoever. What a fucked up and brain melting wasteland of a decade ...

    Don’t remember anything of the early nineties.
