Davy Jones RIP

Davy Jones of the Monkees has died of an apparent heart attack at age 66. The singer had been on a solo tour this month and had complained of chest pains the previous evening and was admitted to a hospital in Stuart Florida.

Jones was born in Manchester, England and started acting as a child, though he got his big break in 1965 when he joined The Monkees. The group had a hugely successful television series, and a slew of hit songs in the late 1960s. At their peak in 1967 they sold more records than the Beatles.

I really have a soft spot for twee 60's pop. 

 

The Monkee's were some of the best, this was really sad news. 

 

The Monkees – Daydream Believer Always was my favourite track.
