Monkees singer Davy Jones died Wednesday, February 29 in Florida. He was 66.
While Jones recorded as a solo artist and appeared in various stage and television projects, his most beloved work was with the Monkees during the band’s 60s heyday. The Monkees came together in 1965 and starred in a TV series of the same name. Hits including “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” “I’m a Believer,” “Daydream Believer,” “Last Train to Clarksville” and the “Monkees” television theme fueled sales of more than 50 million records.
Jones’ later career included playing Fagin in a Broadway production of Oliver! and several solo albums, the last of which he released in 2009.
