    I was going to marry him when I was eight! I used to watch the Monkees and was completely smitten in my childish way. Such a shame, another one of my memories gone.

        Wouldn't that have been a little awkward for your parents?
        Not to mention the jail time for Davy! smile

    Why is this thread in the Sandpit? It is a serious and sad thread. I remember growing up watching The Monkees TV series, and I loved their music. sad

    When someone relatively young dies my mind always goes to whether or not they had any kids.  I guess he's left behind four daughters:

    Talia (10/2/68), Sarah (7/3/71), Jessica (9/4/81), Annabelle (6/26/88)

    He was the Lead Tambormarine player for the Monkees.

    They were a US Manufactured Band in the 60s - 70s created to provide the US youth of the day.. an alternative to The Beatles! smile

    Davy Jones and co inspired musicians like Jim Morrison to question the future of US music and Change it! smile

    Back then the Music Industry movers and shakers considered UK Music to be a major threat to US profits.  So they pretty much did all possible to block the more dynamic UK industry and the huge variety of genres on offer.

    If you consider the UK bands of that time.. I guess the US were prepared to do anything to block the UK 'Invasion' and 'protect' US youth from their influence.

    Animals - Yardbirds - Kinks - Cream - Rolling Stones - Beatles - Small Faces - Hendrix - Cocker etc etc..  All UK..

    Just a few bands that changed the world and finally got played on air in the US.. The US attempted to counter the demand for new age R&R by creating a 'boy band' and having a UK frontman.. Davy Jones.

    Canada changed before the US... Canada was the Nam Draft Dodgers new home and the UK music helped grow the Canadian music scene as it was far more progressive than in the US ..

    Yea... An amazing transition that also helped found the likes of Motown and PDs big_smile
