R.I.P. Davy Jones
The most famous member of the Monkees died today of an apparent heart attack at the age of 66. Yeah, I must confess to being a big Monkees fan as a child. Their TV show is one of the earliest shows I remember watching regularly on TV. This performance of "Daydream Believer" took place during one of the band's reunion concerts at New York's Beacon Theater last year sans Michael Nesmith. Interestingly, the Davy Jones' Band performed at Merrillville's Star Plaza Theatre on January 29, 2011 where it was announced there would be a Monkees Reunion Tour that would commence at the Star Plaza Theatre on May 12, 2011. The group kicked off the tour in May in the United Kingdom with Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork, but the tour got cancelled after the group arrived in the United States after honoring tour dates in June and July here due to "internal group issues and conflicts."
