We remember Davy Jones as one of The Monkees, the pop group that had a bunch of hits for a couple of years in the late 1960's.
Davy was the girls' favorite. I remember that my sister had Davy Jones posters on her wall. She was a huge fan of the group's music and their weekly TV series.
The Monkees sold millions of records. They were actually a pretty good group and I liked many of their songs, too. However, their success faded as the TV show went off the air.
Davy was the lead vocalist on "Daydream Believer", a # 1 song in December 1967.
He also sang lead on "A little bit me, a little bit you", another chart topper from March '67 and the second Neil Diamond tune recorded by the group. (The other was "I'm a believer")
