Hey, Hey


Sad news today...

Davy Jones, the frontman and only British member of the ’60s pop band the Monkees, has reportedly died of a heart attack. The singer passed away at the age of 66.

Jones — along with Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork and Micky Dolenz — turned “The Monkees” into a popular TV show and parlayed that into top 40 success that lasted well after 1968, the year the series came to an end. The Beatles knock-off band’s well-known tunes included “Daydream Believer,” “Last Train to Clarksville,” “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone,” and the theme from “The Monkees.”

I used to watch that show a lot when I was a kid and enjoyed many of their songs at that time.


Lordy, I'm getting old.

You mean because we'll finally be turning "30"? Then, will a challenging year for sure. =)
