Peter Tork — the lovable member of the pop band The Monkees — died Thursday after a decade-long battle with tongue cancer.

Peter’s sister reportedly confirmed the musician’s death but did not reveal where he passed or the cause. The Monkees singer was diagnosed with a rare cancer affecting his tongue, called adenoid cystic carcinoma, back in 2009.

Tork was known as the wise-cracking, self-described “dummy” of the made-for-TV music group … who played bass guitar and keyboard. His claim to fame might be the piano intro on the group’s mega hit, “Daydream Believer.”
