Sad news out of Florida today: Singer Davy Jones of the Monkees died today at the age of 66 of an apparent heart attack. I regularly watched their TV show when I was a kid. I even had a Monkees lunchbox and every record they put out. I loved their customized GTO, "The Monkeemobile". The Monkees had a string of pop hits in the 60's, many of which were penned by music icon Neil Diamond.

I found a video from 1967 when the Monkees came to Western New York. Rest In Peace Davy Jones! Thanks for the music and memories!
