Davey Jones Dead aged 66

Just read on TMZ and Huffington News that The Monkees singer has died in the US of a heart attack age just 66.

That sucks.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1310769.html

RIP. Great memories of listening to the music and watching the show.


What a sad bit of news

Re: Davey Jones Dead aged 66

While he wasn't a great musical talent, I also have fond memories of the band and that ridiculous show. Sad to see him go at such a young age. RIP.

Re: Davey Jones Dead aged 66

So sad, he was on tv last year and looked so well- I grew up watching "The Monkees" and loved it.

He was so cute, short and sweet on that weird show. He made me a believer. RIP

Re: Davey Jones Dead aged 66

Can't believe it.....he was on a british TV programme on Monday talking about being the 'cute one' in a boy band. (He was still looking great for his age.)

Re: Davey Jones Dead aged 66

Very sad indeed. 66 seems truly too early to go.

I remember fondly the Brady Bunch episode in which Marcia was able to convince him to perform at her prom.

Indeed, I never knew how much they actually played & sang & how much was "karaoke" but nevertheless very entertaining & some memorable tunes.

I remember watching The Monkees on TV when I was tiny. I suppose it really was my mother watching and we shared in it...

When I was in high school in the 80s, MTV did a Monkees Marathon one summer, played all the episodes back to back. My older sis and I were in love.

We borrowed an album from one of the neighbors, it had a song on it which never got much recognition as far as I know, but it's my favorite ever.



I love how they're cutting up throughout, with Mickey Dolenz very obviously having a hard time keeping from laughing his tail off.

Re: Davey Jones Dead aged 66

Very sad. We watched him on TV the other day, can't believe he has gone. I remember seeing him and the other Monkees on their show when I was a child, even at my very young age I thought he was very handsome!
RIP.

Re: Davey Jones Dead aged 66

Sad that, I always like to listen to The Monkees to rekindle childhood days listening to the small transistor radio. There were some great pop songs in between all the publicity stuff.
