Wednesday morning beloved Davy Jones, a member of the pop group The Monkees, passed away at the age of 66 due to a heart attack. The Monkees was a pop group invented for a television show that ran from 1966 to 1968 on NBC. The Monkees were made up of American Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork and Englishman Davy Jones.
Jones was born in Manchester, England and was the lone British member and youngest member of the band. He quickly became a teen magnetic for the band as their hit comedy series, “The Monkees”, launched for two seasons on NBC.
The show was an American sitcom designed to utilize the energy of the Beatles film “A Hard Day’s Night”. The pop group had a lot of ups and downs like any band would have but the main issue was were they really a group. The Monkees reached success through the sitcom and made a lot of money selling their records and playing shows. Davy Jones however was the lead, he was the handsome gent who would dance and sing the melodies.
As far as considering them a band.. i think they make the cut. The Monkees wrote their own songs, played their own music and stayed true to themselves by having fun. They’re known for producing hits like “I’m a Believer”, “Daydream Believer”, “Valleri” and many more.
Heres one of my personal favorites below.
Rest In Peace Davy Jones
30 December 1945 – 29 February 2012
