I just heard Davy Jones of Monkees fame is dead at 66.

He took the "Last train to Clarksville".

Wow that sucks if it's true..

The first LP I bought was "More of the Monkees" when I was 11. Thanks Davy.

The UK sends the Beatles, the US answers with the Monkees. RIP Davy Jones.

RIP Davy and thanks for all the great music. I saw the Monkee's in Philadelphia at the convention center when I was a kid. Believe it or not, my Dad was in charge of their security that night and my brother and I had the best seat in the house, on stage where they came out. How cool is that.

I cannot believe I actually watched that silly show.


Truth be known I'll take it over everything on TV these days.


These "reality" shows make me sick.

Not a damn thing entertaining bout drunken sluts.

With the possible exception of in the back seat of a 57 Chevy.

Then you need antibiotics so it's a trade off either way.

Must have been a great experience. Wait a minute... Experience. By chance, would this have been one of the Monkees concerts to feature Jimi Hendrix as an opener?

The story of the Monkees is incredibly fascinating. From what I gather they weren't a real rock band at first until they started selling millions of records. Then they decided they better become a real rock band. I saw them (minus Nesmith) on TV a few years back, actually quite accomplished musicians. Davy Jones was a fine singer IMO, really captured the British pop sound, very entertaining personality. I guess when it's your time to go...The Monkees bring back a flood of happy childhood memories. I lived in the Boston Massachusetts area from 1966 to 1971, really the happiest five years of my life. When I think of Davy Jones I think of Needham Massachusetts back then. There'll never be another era like the 60's.

I guess there was a little too much monkeying around on his part... ?
