Goodbye Davy... You will be missed!!!
Thursday, March 1, 2012
Yesterday I was saddened to learn that Davy Jones of the Monkees had died. I have many happy memories of sitting down in the afternoon to watch the show with my mom (reruns by that time because the Monkees were born shortly after I was in 1966!) and then years later watching the Monkee Marathons on MTV with my family. I confess that Peter Tork was my first love--but who didn't like Davy? Oh how I loved their goofy, silliness!! Such good memories and a big influence on my life. I guess that you could say they were the first band I really liked--and still do!! They are probably the reason that music is such a passion in my life.
