Noooooooooooo! Davey Jones dies at 66
From ew, Monkees singer Davy Jones has died after suffering a heart attack. He was 66. Martin County Florida’s District 19 Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the news, first reported by TMZ. Authorities are still investigating the circumstances surrounding his death, which happened earlier today, according to TMZ.
Jones joined the Monkees in 1965 along with Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork. Their hits include “I’m a Believer,” “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone,” “Daydream Believer,” and “Last Train to Clarksville.”
[Edit by Johnny Sweatpants] Posted above is my favorite Davey Jones song Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow). Penned by Neil Diamond it pretty much has everything you could ever ask for in a Davey song including parentheses (which for some reason always makes me laugh when they're in song titles). The song centers around his typical conundrum of falling in love with two girls. The best part is near the end when he tenderly whispers "Mary, I love you" followed immediately by "Sandra, I love you".
