Davy Jones Dies

Davy Jones, the lead singer of The Monkees died of a heart attack at the age of 66 today in Florida.  The Monkees were a huge band who were formed in 1965 for their own TV show & both ended up being huge sensations.  Davy was born in England & got his start on British TV at the age of 11 & his biggest fan was none other than Marcia Brady of The Brady Bunch who was the president of the his fan club! Davy made an appearance on the sitcom as well as later on in The Brady Bunch Movie which I found hilarious. When I was growing up in the 80's I used to watch reruns of The Monkees after school every day but I'm sure that by kids standards today they wouldn't get it...the show was silly & fun & musical & kind of reminded me of Scooby Doo which was another show that Davy Jones was on often.

The loss of Jones will be felt by baby boomers everywhere as well as their children who had the luck to be raised in a home full of The Monkees!  Today Davy Jones took his Last Train to Clarksville & here's that video to remember him by.
