Davy Jones of the Monkees dies at age 66

He wasn't a soul singer, but anyone who lived in the 1960s remembers growing up with Davy Jones, one of the lead vocalists of the singing group The Monkees.  It has been reported today that Jones died in a Florida hospital at age 66.

The Monkees arose out of a funny, somewhat bizarre television comedy show designed to spotlight a fictional group that resembled the Beatles. But that fiction grew into something real, and the Monkees became a top TV show and singing act with songs likes "Daydream Believer" and "Last Train to Clarksville."

Jones was a key part of the group's popularity, with both a solid singing voice and a sense of humor that made him a teen idol and a music star.  He continued to remain popular until the date of his untimely death. He will be missed.
