Ohhhh, that is sad. Mike was my favorite Monkee, but I always liked Davey too, of course. I was in 4th grade at the height of the Monkees and remember dying for Monday nights when the show would be on again.

Rest in peace, Davy.

Davy Jones was the cutest Monkee, in my opinion with Micky Dolenz being a very close second. RIP, Davy.

Mike? With that funny hat.

I had Peter Torks father as a professor in college. His real name was Torkelson.

The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.

Another piece of my childhood...gone...

Davy owned a horse farm a couple towns over from where my parents live in FL. My mother was always sending me newspaper articles about him. The funniest one was a list of "Davy Jones Top 10 Restaurants". She said "we go to a lot of the same places, if we run into him I'll try and fix you up with him. He's still cute and he's not that much older than you."

Little Known Monkee Facts

Frank Zappa once asked Micky to be the drummer for The Mothers of Invention

Mike's mom invented Liquid Paper

Mike was one of the major factors in the creation of MTV.

Davy (along with Tiny Tim) was at the Beatles recording session for 'Revolution'

Mike won the first ever Grammy award for a Music Video (longform) for "Elephant Parts"

The Monkees were the first group to use the Moog Synthesizer on a pop album. (The Doors were second )

Peter plays a 5 string banjo on George Harrison's "Wonderwall" soundtrack. He borrowed the banjo from Sir Paul Macca himself.

The song "Mary Mary" has been covered by such diverse artists as the Butterfield Blues Band and Run D.M.C

In the first episode of the second season (It's a Nice Place to Visit), in the romp, Davy is carrying the Beatles album "Sgt. Pepper". This episode was filmed in May, before the album was released to the public. It pays to be friends with the Beatles, eh?

Samantha Dolenz appears in the episode "The Monkees in Paris"

Peter let David Crosby "borrow" $22,000 to buy his cherished boat "The Mayan"

John Phillips and Lou Adler "seriously considered" letting the Monkees perform at the Monterey Pop Festival, but after weeks of deliberation decided not to let them.

The Monkees got $250,000 in royalties for their first album, yet made a measly $450 a week for shooting their TV show

The Monkees recorded a backing track to "Wasn't Born to Follow", before the Byrds. The song was written for them by Carole King, and for some reason, it was never completed.

In the 60s, Davy owned a clothes boutique called "Zilch" in Greenwich Village

In the 60s & 70s, Peter, Micky & Davy got busted for drugs. Peter was the only one who actually went to jail.

Mike & Nurit's son Jason was in a band with Donovan's son (Donovan) for a few years. Their band was Nancy Boy (great cd!) and they also appeared in the 60s Mini-Series on NBC.

The Monkees out sold the Beatles and the Stones in 1967

Mike was always my favorite but I loved Davey too. Such a handsome and talanted man!!!

My sisters and I would watch this show every time it was on! My Mom thought we were nuts. I lived for The Monkeys back then (the 60's). He will always be remembered!
