Oh, that's sad.. he wasn't that old. You're referring to the ex Monkee?
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.
Oh me too Nell, he was sooooo cute! Well my eight year old self thought so. I loved the Monkees show too. RIP Davy.
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.
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!
Davy Jones and co inspired musicians like Jim Morrison to question the future of US music and Change it!
oh my, my, my, my....i read the words 'the Beatles'..and then 'Jimmy M'..and 'Davy'?.......really?.....guess i don't know the impact of the Monkees...or?...hmmm....always thought of the monkees as more of a an american pop/studio band for the time............basically what you said i guess...but...alternative to the Beatles....oh my....did it look like that from outside of the USA?...in NZ?...don't think it did from within Canada...maybe it's just me....
but...RIP Davy...didn't buy the music however...bought into Jim M and the Beatles tho!...and rock and roll, yeah!
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
i understand now...yes....you mentioned many of my favs from the UK!...
UK/Aus/NZ actors/movies are the best too! ...so gritty, so real, no glamour and hollywood glitz...I luv i!...
hey!...i just watched my first rugby game this week....can you believe that?...i guess there are a few other things i haven't experienced, but, no time like now......and more experiences to come i say! i know this is off topic, but, those rugby players are amazing!......why am i just finding out?...ha ha ha...guess i must be transitioning too!..and will continue....

I'll give my own answer after I see some of yours - I'm hoping, of course, that someone sees the 'overratedness' of the band I think is terribly overrated and sees the 'underratedness' of the band I think is terribly underrated.

Is Superman, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars music the same?The original Superman, Indiana Jones series, and the original three Star Wars movies. Listen to all of them and tell me if you think the music is literally the same song.
