Davy Jones of the Monkees has died of an apparent heart attack aged 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.

I am a massive Monkees fan so this is terribly sad news to me. What’s more we’ve lost the singer of the Greatest Pop Song of All Time.

RIP Davy

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

I don’t give a crap about what you say, but I LOVE the Monkees. They are another band that is part of my soundtrack of joy and happiness. We had just pulled in to the driveway when my mom says “Oh, and Davy Jones died.” I said “Wwwhat? You have to be kidding me.” And I checked Wikipedia and sure enough she was right. “No, no. Davy Jones isn’t dead.” I repeated to myself until I just broke down crying. And I have been crying for the past 15 minutes. I know I have never met him, but I’m also crying because this officially marks the end of the Monkees and there’s no reunion tour with the original band in sight anymore, no chance for the new generation of fans to see the original Monkees on stage in person.

Sleep well, little prince. Perhaps one day we’ll meet on the other side.
We love you.

I am sadden to hear the news about Davey Jones. When I was young back in the 60’s, I was a member of the Monkees Fan Club and they were one of my favorite bands. I remember all the girls I knew had Davey Jones posters on their ceilings. Davey, WE MISS YOU!

Check this out. Even Paul McCartney liked The Monkees!

Of course he did! There’s a photo (which I found but couldn’t link) of him sharing a laugh & a joint (which he elected to hold as if it were a regular cigarette) with Mickey Dolenz.

The Monkees made LOTS of great music between 1966 and ’68! Never mind that they needed a lot of outside help, and that the albums are a bit spotty, and that Davy Jones himself sang many of their weaker numbers – he’ll still be missed. (And their TV show was sure as hell a lot better than the Beatles cartoon.) RIP Davy Jones, thank you for making the whole world brighter!

The Beatles liked the Monkees so much, that Brian Epstein had a party in their honor when the Monkees visited England.

As a kid, I loved the TV show they had. I’ll never forget the classic “Brady Bunch” episode he appeared on as well. He will definitely be missed.

Davy – please tell John & George we said “hi”.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

I think my version of that is that he was on Sabrina The Teenage Witch when I was little.

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Flipping heck. I remember watching that episode of Sabrina on smtv when i was young. Had forgotten all about it. Wasnt that bad a programme before they modernised it ie made it rubbish. Kind of like with the A-Team series 5 or adding Scrappy to Scooby Doo.blue-meanieblue-meanieblue-meanie

Sad news… A true entertainer.

As to the Beatles… I listen to a podcast called “fab 4 free 4 all” (on iTunes… It’s pretty cool)… Anyway, I remember hearing them mention that Davey was a guest on the Ed Sullivan show the night of the Beatles first appearance. True?

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 According to good ol’ Wikipedia:

On 9 February 1964, he appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show… This was the same episode of the show in which The Beatles made their first appearance. Jones said of that night, “I watched the Beatles from the side of the stage, I saw the girls going crazy, and I said to myself, this is it, I want a piece of that.”

Me and my dad were saying the other day how, in a way, The Monkees kind of picked up where The Beatles left off. As The Beatles stopped performing, and were being more creative with their music, and drifted away from that sort of “boy band” image, The Monkees became more popular and kind of filled the gap. 

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

New here… Thanks for the reply. I think you and your dads take is interesting. Never thought of that but there’s truth in that.
