Davy Jones Dies at 66

In this article…

Davy Jones, who won over the hearts of millions of young women during the British Invasion, has passed away today at the age of 66.  From Rolling Stone:

Davy Jones of the Monkees has died of an apparent heart attack at age 66. The singer – who had been on a solo tour this month - complained of chest pains last evening and was admitted to a hospital this morning in Stuart Florida.

Jones was born in Manchester, England and started acting as a child, though he got his big break in 1965 when he joined The Monkees. The group had a hugely successful television series, and a slew of hit songs in the late 1960s. At their peak in 1967 they sold more records than the Beatles.

The Monkees gave us great songs like "Daydream Believer", "Pleasant Valley Sunday", "Valleri", and "I'm a Believer" among others.  Jones possessed a tremendous, bright voice that could lift even the heaviest of spirits.  I can't help but smile when I hear a Monkees song come on the radio.
