Davy Jones 1945-2012

Daisy's very first imaginary boyfriend has passed on:

No doubt you're humming Daydream Believer or Last Train to Clarksville as you read this.

The lead singer of The Monkees, Davy Jones, has died.

His rep tells TMZ that he died after suffering a heart attack this morning in Florida. Jones was 66.

TMZ confirmed Jones' death with an official from the medical examiner's office for Martin County, Fla.

Jones is survived by his wife Jessica and four daughters from previous marriages.

Jones joined The Monkees in 1965, with Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.

Goodbye old friend. (((sobs)))

He was on the same Ed Sullivan that The Beatles were, and he had done NYC gigs the week before his heart attack. The Monkees would not have been as wonderful, or be a legend today, if Stephen Stills had got the DJ role he auditioned for.

Here is a great US blogger who made me think of YOU as I was reading:

I'm gutted Daisy. I have loved the Monkees since their show in the 60's, which went right into syndication after it was canceled, so it's ALWAYS been on in my life. Loved him, loved their show, loved their music.
