RIP: Davy Jones, founding member of the popular 60’s rock group The Monkees, passed away this morning of a heart attack in a hospital near his Florida home. He was 66.
Jones, the only musician signed to a studio deal before auditioning for Bob Rafelson’s and Bert Schneider’s made-for-TV music group The Monkees, was the lead vocalist on many of the band’s most memorable songs, including “Daydream Believer” and “I Wanna Be Free.”
After the Monkees’ disbanded in 1971, Jones continued to perform as a solo artist, and also made several appearances on TV shows, most often as himself.
Jones reunited last year with fellow band members Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork for a three-month tour of Europe and North American entitled An Evening with The Monkees: The 45th Anniversary Tour.
He is survived by his wife Jessica, and four daughters from previous marriages.

Oh, I loved the MONKEYS.  Still remember the songs and sing
Hey, hey, we're the Monkeys quite often.  My grandkids think
I'm crazy (which is what grandmothers are supposed to be) because
they don't have a clue what the Monkeys are all about.

Just one of their songs can bring back teen memories ...
Davie wasn't all that old.  I hope that he had a good life.
