Davy Jones Dead — Monkees Singer Dies at 66 From Heart Attack
Davy Jones — lead singer of The Monkees — died after suffering a heart attack this morning … TMZ has learned. An official from the medical examiner’s office for Martin County, Florida confirmed with TMZ they received a call from Martin Memorial Hospital informing them that Jones had passed away.We’re told Davy suffered the heart attack at a ranch near his Florida home, where he was visiting his horses. Davy began experiencing distress while he was sitting in his car, and that’s where a ranch hand found him.The ranch hand told Sheriff’s detectives … the singer began to complain that he was not feeling well and was having trouble breathing. Paramedics were called and Jones was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. Authorities say there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death. Jones is survived by his wife Jessica and 4 daughters from previous marriages. He was 66-years-old. Jones was married to Jessica Pacheco — his 3rd wife. Jones joined The Monkees in 1965 … along with Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork … and together they churned out a bunch of hugely popular songs including 3 number 1 hits — “Daydream Believer,” “Last Train to Clarksville” and “I’m a Believer.”The group was initially cast by TV producers who wanted to create a scripted series about an actual rock n’ roll band. But the group exploded, and Jones in particular became a Beatles-caliber heartthrob.The Monkees songs were covered by huge bands like Coldpay, and Smash Mouth’s version of “I’m a Believer” was famously featured in “Shrek.” Davy’s last performance was on February 19th in Oklahoma — the night before, he performed “Daydream Believer” and “It’s Nice to Be with You” at the BB King Blues Club in NYC … and he looked totally fine.
Cheer up Sleepy Jean, Davy Jones has died!
I am sad I used to watch the Monkees tv show on I believe MTV when I was growing up. They were hilarious! In fact I want to get the episodes on DVD.
The Monkees were the first Boy Band assembled. Before NKOTB, before Backstreet, before NSYNC, LFO etc… Came the Monkees!
I use to tease my mother and tell her the Beatles wish they were the Monkees! And my mother would laugh and say the other way around. I’ll tell you what, I still like the Monkees better! There isn’t a Monkees song I don’t like! I can say there are a ton of Beetle songs I don’t like!
The Beetles were bleeding heart hippies, especially after John Lennon died, and we had to hear Yoko Ono try to sing and torture us!
The Monkees were straight up comedians, all they wanted to do was make you laugh and have a good time.
The Monkees TV show was hilarious!! Every episode was great! My favorite was Micky Dolenz, but they were all funny. Every single Beetle Movie sucked ass!
Buy the DVD set! You won’t be sad like Sleepy Jean!
R.I.P. Davy we love ya! Thank You!
