Davy Jones Dies at 66
Davy Jones, the lead singer of the legendary group The Monkees, has died. He was 66.
Jones passed away from a heart attack Wednesday morning at a hospital near West Palm Beach, Florida. He was admitted to the hospital Tuesday night complaining of chest pains.
One of his last performances was at a night club in New York City just 11 days ago.
The Monkees debuted in 1965 and churned out hit after hit including, "I'm a Believer," "Last Train to Clarksville," and "Daydream Believer."
The Monkees was the brain child of TV producers who wanted to cash in on the popularity of The Beatles. The Monkees sold 65 million records and Jones was the leader of the group.
He'll always be remembered for his boyish good looks and a memorable cameo appearance on The Brady Bunch as himself.
Jones was married three times and had four daughters. He lived in a modest house in West Palm Beach.
He is survived by his 33-year-old wife Jessica. They were married just last year, and Jones said he was the happiest he had ever been.
