  • I was more of a Peter gal, but this makes me very sad.

  • Um...my first thought was of the Pirates movies and I thought "He's not real!".  Then my brain cells kicked in.  Very sad.

  • I ADORED Davy Jones. Ditto on him being my first celeb crush. I was obsessed with The Monkees, and I just love him. I'm very sad about this news.

    I get it!  (and loved that episode).  Yeah- when something like this happens- it just confirms how much older I am than everyone on here.  It sucks. 

    FWIW- this makes me so sad.  I just adored the Monkees growing up.

    Me too.

    My mom and I used to mimic the Davy Jones dance from the 'video' of Daydream Believer.  And we still do every time we are together and hear that song.  I will be going home and doing the Davy Jones dance in my kitchen tonight in tribute.

  • I can totally see it AND hear the song in my mind.  He was my favorite Monkee.
