Monkees Singer, Davy Jones Dies at 66 From Heart Attack | TMZ.com
I am crushed….
Davy Jones — lead singer of The Monkees — died after suffering a heart attack this morning … TMZ has learned.
An official from the medical examiner’s office for Martin County, Florida confirmed with TMZ they received a call from Martin Memorial Hospital informing them that Jones had passed away.
A rep for the singer tells us Jones suffered a heart attack at his home this morning … and was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Jones is survived by his wife Jessica and 4 daughters from previous marriages. He was 66-years-old. Jones was married to Jessica Pacheco — his 3rd wife.
Jones joined The Monkees in 1965 … along with Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork … and together they churned out a bunch of hugely popular songs including 3 number 1 hits – “Daydream Believer,” “Last Train to Clarksville” and “I’m a Believer.”
Here is some cellphone video from Youtube that was shot not even a couple of weeks ago…
I am so sad to hear this. I was a huge fan of The Monkees before I discovered The Beatles. I was 5 years old and watched the re-runs of the show with my friend Jennifer. One of our first crushes for sure.
Davy Jones…Rest in Peace. We will miss you.
