Lunch Break Video: A tribute to former Monkee Davy Jones who died today at the age of 66 very sad to report that Davy Jones died earlier today at the age of 66, apparently of a heart attack.

He was featured on Greg In Hollywood last summer as a Morning Man Classic.

He was a member of The Monkees from 1965-71. The pop-rock group was formed expressly for a TV show of the same name and Jones sang lead on the band’s big hits Daydream Believer and I Wanna Be Free.

After the TV series went off the air, the group disbanded. Jones continued to perform solo and later joining with fellow-Monkee Micky Dolenz and songwriters Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart as a short-lived group called Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart. He has also toured throughout the years with other members as various incarnations of the Monkees.

Before The Monkees were created, Davy was already a stage star. He played the Artful Dodger in the West End production of Oliver! The show then moved to Broadway and he was nominated for a Tony Award.

Below is a memorable scene from when Davy guest-starred on an episode of The Brady Bunch and was paid a visit in the recording studio by the president of The Davy Jones Fan Club: Marcia Brady!

3 Remarks

  1. Im very sad to hear about Davy Jones today,but you will never be forget for all your great music in The Monkees.Thank you.R.I.P.

  2. Today was definitely a little sad for me. Another part of my childhood gone. Growing up in the sixties my three sisters and I used to go nuts watching The Monkees on television and used to dance to their singles on the record player. My youngest sister had a huge crush on Davy Jones and used to cut out all of his pictures from various magazines and make a collage out of them. Great music and happy memories. Thank you. RIP.

    Loved the Brady clips above.

    I remember him in the Scooby-Doo movies cartoon series when Scooby and the gang visited Hagglethorne Castle and met Davy Jones. I loved the clip when Davy Jones sang and was chased by a huge frog with
    Daphne and Velma.

    He also appeared on GSN’s special celebrity version of Newlywed Game with host Sherri Shepherd last year.

    I guess that ends the Monkees reunion tour.
