Sad, sad day for fans of The Monkees. :(

I grew up watching the show and wanted to marry Davy when I was a kid (I had no clue how old the show was at the time or that he was over 30 years older than me, lol). And oddly enough, I was thinking about him yesterday because I was talking about an old stuffed crust Pizza Hut commercial: http://youtu.be/gsIufle2_zA

Fans younger than me might remember him best from his cameo in The Brady Bunch Movie.

RIP Davey.

I'm much too young to be a huge fan of The Monkees (My Mum liked them growing up), but it's still sad to know that he died at such an age. :(

I'm not all crazy about the Monkees, but Davy Jones will be missed. :(

My roommate told me about his passing when I came home. :( I used to watch the show every day when I was little, and I used to see him perform every year at Epcot. RIP, Davy. You've made so many people so happy.

Yeah- in my book, he was a great guy, a hunk, a legend, and those Brady movies were fun.

Back in 1967 when The Monkees were all the rage and they started touring to prove they could all play their own instruments, I had the pleasure of emceeing a concert at Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara, California that headlined The Monkees.

Mickey, Mike, Peter and Davy were all gentlemen, and they could play their instruments rather well.

I am pleased to have this memory to remember Davy Jones by.

R.I.P.: Davy Jones

Davy Jones was probably the first crush that I can remember having. I had all the Monkess albums (now the CDs) and I have both seasons of the series. I also loved Davy on his Brady Bunch episode!
The Monkees' music is underrated, imo.

You know... I haven't heard much of their stuff but I've always thought this song was incredible:

Not that anyone is/would be surprised. But, this is A+ music. Not just pop either, real rock music. Not nearly as sweet as a lot of bands and acts who have reputations for being factory assembled. This song points to real musicianship.
