ncis: family dont end with blood
You once thought of me as a white knight on his
steed
Now you know how happy I can be
Oh, and our good time starts and ends...


Davy Jones was my favorite Monkee. And my first crush :p Yes, he was just slightly before my time but I grew up watching The Monkees in syndication and listening to my parents' records, of which "Barrell Full of Monkees" and "The Birds, the Bees and the Monkees" were just two. Thus began my love of all things British and boyish brunettes with nice voices. I actually got into Star Trek because Walter Koenig reminded me just enough of Davy to catch my eye before watching the show revealed other things that kept it. Did you know that, at one time, The Monkees sold more albums than The Beatles and The Rolling Stones combined? They were the first boyband and a construct like Big Time Rush who managed to make themselves real.

If you haven't heard, Davy Jones died of a heart attack yesterday, at 66 years-old. I don't really have a lot of words about it, just love for that man and prayers for him and his family.
  • I was really saddened by the news too. I loved their TV show. It was hilarious even though it was so short-lived. I remember his guest appearance on the Brady Bunch (I watched it on Nick at Nite - it was bf my time too) and thought Marcia was the luckiest girl in the world.
  • I used to watch the Monkees too. :) Here, here.
