Davy Jones of The Monkees Dead At 66

Davy Jones, the 1960′s teen heartthrob and singer of the popular musical group The Monkees, died early this morning after suffering a heart attack.

Jones was the object of many young girls affections in the 60′s and is still just as beloved as in The Monkees’ hay-day.

Television producers had wanted to create a scripted TV show about a real life rock band, and so casting for the group was priority number one.

Jones was cast in 1965 along with co-stars/band-mates, Peter Tork, Mike Nesmith, and Mickey Dolenz.

Together, they are responsible for the hit songs “The Last Train To Clarksville”, “Daydream Believer”, and “I’m A Believer”.

Jones is survived by his wife Jessica, and his 4 daughters from previous relationships.

Oh, that’s sad. I didn’t get the chance to see Jones during their hay-day but I really appreciate their song “I’m A Believer”.
