Monkees’ Member Davy Jones Dead at 66

Mar 01, 2012 The Monkees Bookmark and Share

Monkees member Davy Jones died today of a heart attack in his Florida home. He was 66.

From 1965 through 1971 Jones was a member of The Monkees—a band fabricated for the surrealist program of the same name. The bandmates went on to star in Head, a stream of conscience-style film penned by Jack Nicholson.

In recent years, Jones has been seen on Broadway. He also penned three books about life as a Monkee, including Davy Jones: Daydream Believin’ in 2000.

Our thoughts go out to Jones’ family, friends, and fans.

Thank you, Under the Radar, for this tribute to Davey Jones and the Monkees.  I was a young girl in love with him in the ‘60s.  I think I know all the lyrics to all of their songs.  RIP Davey Jones, from one of your “Day Dream Believers”.
