    I heard about this only a few moments ago. He will be missed by me. I own the entire The Monkees television series, and I like a lot of their music. http://www.tmz.com/2012/02/29/davy-jones-dead-monkees/

    That is sad, he was scheduled to appear in concert here in the Los Angeles area in the next month or so.

    This computer can barely play video, so I hope this works.

    The original Dave Jones. Anyone know the other who changed his name because of this Davey Jones? I loved the Monkees Tv show when I was a kid. This is a sad day.

    I know I am in the minority but I had always hoped The Monkees would be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame while all four members were alive. I think they were as influential as most bands of their era despite their pre-fab origins. I am glad I got to see them on their last tour. It feels like the sixties and my childhood idols are fading fast. I think I am going to have to watch my blu-ray of Head this weekend.

    I spent the afternoon listening to their music on Spotify. I've always loved Daydream Believer, but they have a lot of good stuff. RIP Davy Jones.

    I too listened to one of my albums of theirs. I have always loved (I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone, but I'm A Believer, Last Train To Clarksville, Mary, Mary, She, and (especially) Valerie, as well as several other tunes of theirs, are also quite appealing to me musically. I will be watching several of the television episodes over the next few days. :)
