    Davy Jones (The Monkees) died

    He had a heart attack. 66 yrs old. I remember watching them, silly as they were, back then it wasn't as silly.

    Brings back so many memories of high school, waiting with my best friend for the show to come on, sighing over how cute he was, how funny they were, singing along with all their songs. I will say a little prayer for him tonight and remember all the joy.

    I heard the news on the way home from work today. I felt so sad. My best friend had their album and we'd sit in her room in the late 60's and dream of someday marrying Davy Jones LOL. It was such a wonderful time in my life. He certainly left this earth too soon.

    I remember watching the Monkees when I was in Jr. High! I loved to listen to them sing. My cousin and I had all their albums...on vinyl records....that tells my age doesn't it! The Monkees were one of the good ones...no drugs....no scandals...just good clean fun. RIP Davy!

    I had a HUGE crush on Davy Jones back in the day! Posters hanging over my bed, music playing full blast, day dreaming that one day he would be MINE! What fond memories of my youth. Thank you Davy for being a part of my growing up years. You will be missed. R.I.P.

    Daydream Believer was my favorite song by them. On the news they said The Monkees sold more songs in 1967 than the Beatles and Rolling Stones. I didn't realize that. They were out when I was in high school. Hearing their songs brought back a lot of memories.

    My little sister cried for days when he married the first time. She called me yesterday(29th) to tell me and she was crying a little then. He was to young to go, but life happens. We all will miss you Davy!!

    I hadn't thought of them in years, but I used to love the Monkees. Of course, Davy was the cute one! Good clean fun. Their show was silly, but their music was surprisingly good. I still like it. I used to have every one of their albums, and they made quite a few.

    Davy's death really makes me feel old... He gave us a lot of happiness. My condolences to his loved ones.

    They were a very good group especially if you consider that the shows producers put them together as a band. They never knew each other before the show. And then they sold millions of records, their tunes still alive today.
    I sat and watched and sang with them. I am very saddened by his passing at an early age.

    I was sad to hear it as well. I enjoy their songs. The Monkees were one of the original boy bands.
