The world of entertainment lost yet another one of its iconic stars today when Monkees singer Davy Jones died. He was 66 and reportedly suffered a heart attack at his home in Indiantown, Fla. As old as I
feel sometimes am, the Monkees were actually a little before my time. But because of reruns of "The Brady Bunch," Davy was an indelible part of my childhood -- could you blame Marcia for having such a crush? he was nearly as tall as she was!!! -- which led to my seeking out 45's of "Daydream Believer," “Last Train to Clarksville,” “I’m a Believer” and “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone.” While it's not as painful as losing a 48-year-old diva, 66 still seems awfully young. RIP, Davy.
