Today brought sad news of another untimely death as Davy Jones of The Monkees passed away at his home in Florida yesterday aged only 66.

The only British member of The Monkees Davy Jones was adored for his cute looks and tongue and cheek personality back in the late 60’s and early 70’s.

Like many people I have very fond memories of gathering around the television set as a teenager to watch The Monkees TV show where Davy Jones and band mates Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork and Michael Nersmith would perform their now famous pop songs- Daydream Believer was a favourite of mine.

Cited as the ‘American Beetles’ the era of The Monkees was an fantastic time and I’m sure that many people will agree that Davy Jones played a huge role in entertaining young people across the world. A very sad loss indeed.
