Davy Jones of The Monkees Dead at 66


Davy Jones of The Monkees has died.

He was 66.

Jones reportedly suffered a heart attack in Florida.

He is survived by his wife and four children from previous marriages.

Jones and Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork were assembled into a pop group for a TV show called The Monkees.

Their hits, including “I’m A Believer,” “Daydream Believer,” and “Last Train to Clarksville,” made the quartet one of the most commercially successful groups of the 1960s.
