Unhappy Davy Jones dead at 66

Quote:
Davy Jones, the lead singer of beloved TV singing group The Monkees, died Wednesday at age 66, his rep confirms to Us Weekly. "He passed away in his home in Indiantown, Florida this morning, of a heart attack," the rep said in a statement. (TMZ first broke the story.)


The British 1960s pop idol passed away at Martin Memorial Hospital in Stuart, Florida, an official confirmed to the site. The circumstances of his death are not yet known.


With his boyish handsome looks, charisma and musical talent, Jones joined The Monkees in 1965 alongside Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork; the foursome was created by TV producers for a popular scripted sitcom about a rock 'n roll band.

Jones is survived by wife Jessica and four daughters from previous relationships. The voice behind hits like "Daydream Believer," "Last Train to Clarksville" and "I'm a Believer" -- who also made a memorable cameo appearance on The Brady Bunch as himself -- performed as recently at Feb. 19 in Oklahoma.

66 used to seem so old to me. Now it seems way too young, and it terrifies me because my dad is in his 60's.

Aside from that, RIP Davy. My mom loved you.

The Monkeys were great back in the day. Me and my brothers watched the show and had the albums.

The songs still hold up. And Davy never took himself too seriously. He knew what they were doing and enjoyed the ride.

RIP
