Davy Jones RIP

Post by sandyinblack »

Just read on't net.

Davy jones from the sixties band has died.

No longer Monkieing around.

Grew up watching the TV show. Good memories. Zany humour and one of the original 'put together' bands.

Aw ra best Davy

Heart attack apparently. Great voice and lead singer, funny as well. RIP

Oh dear. :(

Some of thier later, self-penned and played, tunes were excellent.

I've always loved 'Porpoise Song (Theme from 'Head').

Joking aside, I wouldn't be surprised. Look at Winehouse, Houston etc etc etc-
I've never understood why anyone waits til the singer/artiste kicks the bucket then
decides its now time to buy that Greatest Hits album? :roll:
