What is Peter Tork's net worth? Peter Tork's net worth is $4 million dollars. Born in Washington, D.C., Peter Tork, also known as Peter Halsten Thorkelson, studied at Carleton College and then moved to New York City to focus on a folk music career. In New York, he became friends with Stephen Stills, who recommended that he audition for a television show that was looking for cute musicians. He ultimately won the role, and became part of the music sensation, The Monkees. The most proficient of the musicians in the band, he was the only member of the group who actually played an instrument on their first two albums. He also began writing songs for the band in the late 60s. After tensions began to run high among the group members in 1968, Tork bought out his own contract and set off on a solo career. He was largely unsuccessful, however, and eventually became a teacher in California. In the 80s, after recording a few unsuccessful demos, he began touring with The Monkees again. He has continued to make music, both with The Monkees, and as a solo artist, since then.
Peter Tork (born February 13, 1942) is an American musician and actor, best known as the keyboardist and bass guitarist of The Monkees.
Tork was born Peter Halsten Thorkelson at the Doctor's Hospital, Washington, D.C. Although he was born in 1942, many news articles incorrectly report him as born in 1944 in New York City, as this was the date and place given on early Monkees press releases. He is the son of Virginia Hope (n'ee Straus) and Halsten John Thorkelson, an economics professor at the University of Connecticut. His paternal grandfather was of Norwegian descent, while his mother was of half German Jewish and half British Isles ancestry. He began studying piano at the age of nine, showing an aptitude for music by learning to play several different instruments, including the banjo and acoustic and bass guitars. Tork attended Windham High School in Willimantic, Connecticut, and was a member of the first graduating class at E.O. Smith High School in Storrs, Connecticut. He attended Carleton College before he moved to New York City, where he became part of the folk music scene in Greenwich Village during the first half of the 1960s. While there, he befriended other up-and-coming musicians such as Stephen Stills.
Stills suggested Tork audition for a new television series about four pop-rock musicians, when the producers asked if Stills 'had a better looking (musician) friend'. Tork got the job and became one of the four members of The Monkees, who ended up being both characters in a television sitcom and a band in their own right.
Tork was a proficient musician, and though the group generally did not play their own instruments on their first two albums, he was an exception, playing what he described as "third chair guitar" on Mike Nesmith's song "Papa Gene's Blues" from their first album. He subsequently played keyboards, bass guitar, banjo, harpsichord, and other instruments on their recordings. He also co-wrote, along with Joey Richards, the closing them
