With just two shows left on the Monkees 35th anniversary tour, Peter Tork says he was fired. He claims that Mickey Dolenz and Davy Jones were constantly drinking backstage which turned them into malicious madmen.
"I'm a recovering alcoholic and haven't had a drink in several years," he told the National Enquirer. "I'm not against people drinking, just when they get mean and abusive. I went on the tour with the agreement that I didn't have to put up with the drinking and difficult behavior."
