    Damn!...I can remember,as a kid, watching that show and my older sister going nuts over the Monkees.

    Shame.

    Nice song.

    Sorry to hear he has died so young.
    You just don't know when you may leave this world.

    I am grateful for every day I am still here.

    I came back to say

    I realize to many 66 is not young. I feel it is way to soon to go.

    Although I'm quite a bit younger than 66, I don't feel he was old at all.
    Especially these days! Even so, age didn't kill him. A heart attack can take down anyone.

    I used to watch The Monkees when I was a kid. Back in the day, of 3 local channels. TV reception depended on how good was the antenna on the roof.

    My late Dad was a Ham Radio enthusiast. A decent radio or TV antenna was no problem.
    Get up on the roof and turn the tv antenna. We later upgraded to an indoor antenna rotor - could turn the antenna from the comfort of the living room. We had the technology!

    Sad news today triggered a happy childhood memory.

    Re: In Memory of Davy Jones

    Davy Jones probably looked younger because he was of small stature.
    He was 5'3" tall.

    He trained to be a Jockey. Enjoyed horse racing and regretted not sticking with it.

    Horse racing

    Jones was a keen horse owner and rider. Training as a jockey in his teens, Jones later said "I made one huge mistake. When The Monkees finished in 196970, I should have got away from Hollywood and got back into the racing game. Instead I waited another 10 years. Everyone makes mistakes in life and for me that was the biggest."[14] He held an amateur rider's licence and rode in his first race at Newbury for trainer Toby Balding. On 1 February 1996 he won his first race, on Digpast, in the one-mile Ontario Amateur Riders' Handicap at Lingfield. [14] Jones also had horse ownership interests in both the USA and the United Kingdom and was the representative for a racecourse in Virginia.[1
