Most of my childhood was taken up by reruns of The Monkees. Before I really knew who The Beatles were, I knew Davy Jones, Mickey Dolenz, Peter Tork and Mike Nesmith and laughed endlessly at their hilarious antics and madcap zaniness. And to my mother’s delight, I also loved their music (whether they actually created it or not.) I wore out several vinyl LPs listening to Daydream Believer, Last Train to Clarksville among others.
Rest in Peace, Davy Jones.
