Sorry to hear of the death of Davy Jones, the Manchester-born lead singer with 60s band The Monkees, has died aged 65, his publicist has confirmed.

He died in his sleep at his home in Florida. His publicist, Deborah Robicheau, said he had a massive heart attack.

How sad. This was his greatest musical moment – an echo of a more innocent age and a great tune well delivered.

  1. Sad, and he was always a happy guy. For a pure pop invention they had a charming string of songs.

    Now David Bowie may change his name back to Davy Jones.

  2. I didn’t even know he was English. I assumed they were West Coast sunshine boys. All of a sudden I read on his wiki page he played Ena Sharples’ grandson and also appeared in Z Cars!

  3. I know it is harsh, especially considering the guy just died, but the only thing I can think of when I hear this song is Cheer-Up Alan Shearer.

  4. The Monkees were fun. They were considered total pap at the time, but some of the songs were good and Peter Tosh (?) was a good musician.
    The lads were close friends with high-priest of LSD Timothy Leary at the time, and apparently used to film the series episodes stoned out of their heads.

    Nice to see that some of their hits got successful covers in recent years.

  5. During my time in the World Trade Center, they had free outdoor evening concerts during the summer.

    One of these was by The Monkees with Davy Jones. See link for photos. I was there that day, and I stopped by the concert( see photos in the link )

  6. Trivia or perhaps myth, but I always heard that Mike Nesmith’s mom invented White Out.
