Lead singer of the Monkees and daydream believer Davy Jones has passed on at 66.
Born David Thomas Jones in Manchester, England, he became the principal character of the NBC comedy series "The Monkees" alongside Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz and Mike Nesmith, which was inspired by the Beatles' film "A Hard Days Night." The show only lasted a few seasons, but Jones went on to perform in different incarnations of the group for the rest of his life. The group had a number of international hits including "Last Train To Clarksville," "(I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone" and "I'm A Believer."
He later made famous appearances on a variety of television like "Hey Arnold," "Spongebob Squarepants," "The New Scooby Doo" and played himself on that famous episode of "The Brady Bunch."
Jones passed away after suffering a heart attack in Florida this morning.
