Davy Jones of The Monkees Dies at 66

Fox News:

Davy Jones, the lead singer of the pop group The Monkees, died Wednesday at the age of 66, TMZ reported.

Jones reportedly suffered a heart attack Wednesday morning.

An official with the medical examiner’s office in Martin County, Fla., told the entertainment website the office received a call from Martin Memorial Hospital informing them that Jones had died.

Jones joined The Monkees in 1965, along with Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork,  and together they churned out a bunch of hits including, “Daydream Believer, “Last Train to Clarksville” and “I’m a Believer.”

The group was initially cast by TV producers who wanted to create a scripted series about an actual rock n’ roll band.

Jones is survived by his wife and four children.
