Davy Jones

Davy Jones, of dreamy, dreamy Monkees fame, has died. Jones was sixty-six years old, and reportedly suffered from a heart attack earlier today in his Florida home.

Born in Manchester, Jones rose to teenybopper fame as the frontman of the made-for-TV band The Monkees in the late 1960s (fun fact: he was a jockey first!), and had been a pop-culture staple ever since. The band continued recording after their TV show stopped airing in 1968, having already spawned a series of hits including "Daydream Believer," "I'm a Believer," and "Last Train to Clarksville." In the 1980s, Jones embarked on a Monkees reunion tour. He also made a cameo as himself on a beloved episode of The Brady Bunch, and later on in The Brady Bunch Movie.

Watch below for a clip of Jones performing the always-classic "Daydream Believer." RIP Davy.
