Remember this guy well, showing my age. Day of running around the house singing “Hey Hey, We’re the Monkees” drew no criticism I ever hear, just good clean fun.

RIP Davey Jones.

Davy Jones, lead singer of ... The Monkees whose hits included “I’m a Believer” and “Last Train to Clarksville”

Those tunes were sung by Micky Dolenz.

Very fond memories of the TV shows - lots of good, clean zany fun. The music was - is- addictive, too.

RIP Davy. Mid-sixties is far too soon to go.

I agree. Mid-sixties is much to young. The Monkeys TV show and their music was much more than just a way to sell records. Great fun and great memories. Their shows can still sometimes be seen on Japanese satelite TV.

Randomly for the last four days I have been singing some of the Monkey's songs. Also been randomly doing the walk, now I am really sadden Davy is gone. How much fun was that show, how many times a group of my friends got together to imitate the walk. Lots of laugh from a band that seem to know how to have fun. Thank you Davy.

Los Monkees?? Yup!! That's what they are called in Spanish and back in Mexico as a young wee lad I used to watch their tv show almost every day!! RIP Davy

I didn't watch the Monkees reruns growing up, I remember him mostly from the guest appearance he did on Sabrina The Teenage Witch, and of course the songs. I love Daydream Believer. Pop music at its best.

RIP.

RIP. Yes 66 is way too young. I'm going to assume that he must have had some condition which lead to this. If I recall, Gene Rodenberry wanted a character "like that little guy in the Monkees" for the role of Ensign Chekov.

You left us at far too young an age, Davey. You'll be missed.
