News reports say The Monkees star Davy Jones died today in a Florida hospital.I’m only 30 but I know who Davy Jones is. My mother insisted we watch The Monkees re-runs because she knew my siblings and I were big The Beatles fans and we’d enjoy the humor. We sure did. Having seen “A Hard Day’s Night” on VHS I totally got the jokes.

During my teenage years I bought a The Monkees CD that had their original hits by Neil Diamond as well as some newer tunes written in the 80s or 90s to tour with. I loved all of it. I never understood why Diamond lent the goofy TV show some of his best songs!

Davy Jones was unforgettable. Here is what I’ll miss most:

  • His short-guy jokes
  • Endearing smile
  • Smooth British accent
  • High voice that beat Rush and Led Zeppelin in singing quality
  • Only actor I know who could make me laugh by acting sad.
