It always comes in threes. First that one guy. Then Whitney Houston. And now....
Teen idol Davy Jones of The Monkees. Dead at 66. Oh how the mighty have fallen.
I remember begging to stay up late to watch The Monkee's on TV as a kid. Great fun.
They were a TV show. They were a "band." Davy Jones and Mike Nesmith were the only real singer/musicians in the group. The other two, Peter Tork and Mickey Dolenz were there for comic relief. Davy, with his Brit accent was the heartthrob that the girls all shit themselves over.
But whenever I think of Davy Jones, I remember the time he was on The Brady Bunch as himself.
Songs I remember by The Monkees? Daydream Believer. Last Train To Clarksville.That's it.
