R.I.P. Davy Jones

I wasn’t around for the first run of The Monkees, but I caught reruns on Nickelodeon at a young age and was influenced by them. I didn’t have a favorite, but Davy came close. I couldn’t figure out why he had the same name as “Davy Jones locker”, but I liked him nonetheless. I loved “Daydream Believer” and “I Want To Be Free”. I even loved “That Was Then, This Is Now” from the revamped Nesmith-less Monkees.


And I thought it was particularly hilarious when Davy was on The Brady Bunch Movie. At the school dance, all the teachers flocked to the stage.

I’m sorry to hear today that he has died and I hope he rests in peace.
