RIP Davy Jones

Davy Jones the actor and musician who became famous for his role in the wacky TV series The Monkees and for taking Marcia Brady to the school dance has died at the age of 66 from a  suspected heart attack. Davy Jones started his acting career on the English TV show Coronation Street as Ena Sharple’s grandson in 1961. For a short time he left acting to train to be a jockey but he soon found himself returning to the stage in the musical Oliver. In 1965 Jones big break came in the surprisingly successful US show the Monkees, as the lead singer of the Beatles inspired band. In his later years he continued to sing and act. Hey, hey ….
