    "That David has stepped beyond my view causes me the sadness that it does many of you," Nesmith posted on his Facebook page Wednesday. "I will miss him, but I won't abandon him to mortality ... David's spirit and soul live well in my heart, among all the lovely people, who remember with me the good times, and the healing times, that were created for so many, including us."

    .
    Very nice.

    I saw Dolenz and Tork both made very nice statements as well. The Monkees were here in the Twin Cities last summer and I was unable to attend. So sad now that I missed it. As I mentioned earlier, I met Jones at a reunion show in Jones Beach NJ in 1986. I was 18 and acted just as Marcia had in The Brady Bunch. He was about as charming and lovely as he could be. Although I cant speak of him personally, I would say he was a class act.

    Safe travels Davy

    What's real deal, Bill McNeal? I read he had pains at his ranch & was rushed to the hospital, that he died in his sleep, that he had pains at home & went to hospital. What on earth?

Wow. I thought he would be the last to go.

    David bowie had to change his name when he got started because he was born david jones

    now i'll be monitoring this post for a last alive photo and a box shot.

    My family saw a production of GREASE back in the early 1990s which starred Davy Jones as the sleazy "Dick Clark"- type DJ/host "Vince Fontaine", with Sally Struthers as the tipsy "Principal McGee." He was great, and their prom scene together was a hoot.
    I also looked forward to "the Monkees" night all those years ago. And to think, at age 10-11 back then, I thought age 66 was "super old."
    Now look what's happened.

    I haven't been around much lately, but I just had to pop in and post how sad I was to hear of Davy's passing . RIP Davy and condolences to your family.

    TMZ reporting about the ranch. the 911 call was the ranch hand? I think the died in his sleep may not be accurate?

    Seems him passing away in his car while the ranch hand called 911 is most plausible - they probably took him to the hospital anyway.

    OHHHH! This one made me sad! The older I get the younger 66 becomes. One of my favorite Brady Bunch episodes was the one Davy Jone's one. I love it when he's singing in the studio and HE fades out...ha haha ha ha ha! Doesn't that happen in production?!! Of course it does. Sad thing. Kinda a nice guy!

    Ah yes, the Davy Jones Dance... the one Axl Rose borrowed.

    RIP Davy. The Monkees were my first also. Very sad for us, glad he didn't die a lingering death. {sob} - this makes me sad. A co-worker told me about it... I had no idea until about an hour ago. :-( Damn.

    RIP Davy. I was shocked by this, I've been watching the news to see if Peter had died. When MTV brought back the Monkees in 85 or 86 I taped and watched, then re-watched every episode and was hooked! Peter was always my favorite, but Davy was always a force in the band. Safe travels.

    I had an inexplicable urge to watch Monkees videos on Youtube yesterday...the day BEFORE he died...and I hadn't thought of the Monkees in years. Must be some sort of Death Hag sense.

    RIP Davy! Didn't grow up with them since they were before my time, but adored the re-runs on FOX and of course loved the music!

    Add me to the list of the brokenhearted. I had the biggest crush on him. I think he is the reason a British accent makes me go weak in the knees.

    RIP Davy, and thank you for being a happy part of my childhood.

    OMG I am so shocked by this!! I had such a massive crush on him when I was growing up. Since I never got to meet and marry Paul McCartney, I decided it must be because Davy was the one for me. I'm so saddened by his passing. I did get to meet him about 20 years ago, which was a thrill for me. RIP Davy. You played a mean tambourine.

    I just watched the footage of his show on the 18th and it made me realize that a heart could cause an otherwise healthy man to just drop dead. That is an obvious statement, but what I mean by it is that Davy shows no symptoms of a man who would be dead in a fortnight. Being a clean liver he probably thought he had at least another ten years. Hell, we all thought that.

    OK I was holding up fine until I clicked on this...

    I was 5 when the Monkees were cancelled and had a mad crush on Davy. My BF saw him years ago, said he was nice enough but refused to sign autographs. I got one through the mail though less than a year ago.

    Anybody else have the Dolenz Jones Boyce & Hart album from 1976? I wore it out.

    Conflicting reports as to what happened but in any event it sounds like (like my dad) he was going about his life as usual and had no idea it was coming. RIP Davy.

    I would race home from the bus stop after school to watch them on Nickelodeon. The show would come on at 4:30pm, just after You Can't Do That on Television. I always thhought Davy was so handsome and was totally bummed when my mom told me what I was watching was 20 years old. That's how I learned what a rerun was. RIP Davy...

    Here's what kind of guy he was. This little girl from Arizona was struck by a truck while holding a Monkees record, on her way to the repair shop to retrieve her record player. She lost a leg. Either her father or the doctor asked her idol, Davy Jones, to write her a letter of encouragement, but he immediately flew to her side instead with an armload of gifts, and stayed with the family. Outside of this picture he didn't allow any further publicity, and he stayed in touch with her. Wonder where she is now...or, to quote Boyce and Hart, I wonder what she's doing tonight.

    Actually heard it twice tonight on the way to work. Loved both him and Micky as much as my little 8 year old heart could. I watched the reruns every night before supper

    Rest in peace sweet man.

    My walls were adorned with Tiger Beat pin-ups of Davy, David Cassidy, Donny Osmond, and Bobby Sherman. To this day if people ask me is I play a musical instrument, I tell them I do: the tambourine - just like Davy Jones RIP, my childhood friend.


    Bored? Enjoy!

    Same here. I thought Davy was beyond dreamy when I was a kid and was just confused as all hell when my mom told me that The Monkees were older than her and the show was from the 60s! The show still comes on Antenna TV here on the weekends. Don't like it much now but the music is still great.

    Funny, I was just thinking of Davy a few weeks ago and looked him up on YouTube, etc. Seems like all the people I liked as a kid are just dying off.

    I remember Davy and the whole Milli Vanilli-type scandal broke out during the show's heyday. Davy really could sing but other musicians were really playing and backing him up. Such a big deal that was. Seems kinda stupid now considering they were put out as a tv novelty act in the first place.

    The show was fun and i used to watch it every week. RIP Davy.

    I got into the Monkees only a few years ago, when (for shame) I was playing singstar one Christmas with my siblings and "Daydream Believer" was one of the songs. I watched Davy do his little dance and remarked to my brother "that mofo Axl stole his moves!"

    R.I.P Davy. Didn't think I'd wake up and see you on TMZ this morning.. such a great guy.

    Davy won a Tony award for his role in Oliver before the Monkees were conceived. By his own admission, he was not the greatest singer at the time, but he took lessons and became quite good. Contrary to popular belief, Dolenz did the most singing of the quartet.

    The band did play the instruments themselves on tour, but in the studio not so much. Their backing band, Candy Store Prophets played all the instrumental solos.

    People say we 'Monkee' around??? (Is that right)

    I read somewhere many years ago.... that whenever the Monkee's toured the UK, the opening act was none other than Jimi Hendrix who was Booed yeah BOOED off the stage by all the teenage girls screaming for the Monkees.
    I don't know if this is true or not maybe someone from across the pond can confirm.
