Just heard that he died - heart attack
Just heard, I can barely daydream believe it myself.
That's a bummer. Makes me wish I paid their exorbitant ticket prices when they were touring.
Gosh, these guys who have always seemed so preternaturally young, and enthusiastic and lively; I really liked The Monkees - and some of their tunes were great. When I was a kid, I remember seeing their TV series and thinking that it was amazing; as a kid, I wanted to be a part of this endlessly optimistic, cheerful and sunny world with music to match.
R.I.P. Davy Jones
RIP Davey. I grew up with you guys and the beatles
Able to see him at EPCOT a few years ago. Still had tons of energy. R.I.P.
Wow. This makes me sad. I used to watch the repeats of their show as a kid and I had a huge crush on him.
This is a shame. I liked their music.
Sad. Loved them as a kid and still have a bunch of their music on my iPod.
BREAKING: Picture of Davy Jones being rushed to hospital.
I had a crush on him too. Actuallly, what gay kid during the late 60s didn't?
Sad, wasn't that old either
The funny thing there.. 'gay' back then actually meant what it was supposed to mean: Happy.
I was shocked by this too. I grew up watching them when they resurged on Nick at Nite in the mid-80s. I thought they were new then, not 20 years before then!
I know what I'll be singing to my son tonight before I put him to bed.
Very sad news. RIP Davy
That's not cool at all .
Another icon from my youth has died.
The good guys, they go too. A sad day.
One of the things that made me smile (in a good way) was reading in several recent books on the Beatles, how John Lennon & Paul McCartney had some affection for The Monkees. I caught heat from my peers for liking them back then. Sure they were put together, but they also fought quite publicly with the suits to do their own records. Davy had an acting career prior to the Monkees TV show, as did Mickey Dolenz.Davy Jones was a genuine teen idol.
True; which is apparently why David (neé Jones) Bowie felt he had to change his name when he was starting out.
I immediately set my Monkess collection on the iPod to shuffle when I heard the news. Very sad to hear another of my childhood idols has gone.
