R.I.P. Davy Jones

(YouTube link)

Davy Jones, the former singer for The Monkees, died this morning of a heart attack at a hospital in Florida.
After "The Monkees" disbanded in 1971, Jones sang solo as well as with various reincarnations of the group.

He also acted on stage and screen, with his most famous TV appearance as himself on "The Brady Bunch," in an episode where Marcia Brady was the president of his fan club and tried to get the singer to appear at her school dance. He also played Fagin in "Oliver!" on Broadway.

Recently, he played himself on an episode of "Sponge Bob Square Pants."

MSNBC posted a collection of music videos from The Monkees. Jones was 66. Link

As a kid, The Monkees was my favorite TV show.

Davy seemed like a great guy and all the girls in school had a crush on him, I even remember the rabbi's daughter had a crush on him.

Good luck on your journey, Davy.

Thanks for all the fun and happiness you brought into my life.
