Davy Jones 1945-2012

The shocking news came today that Davy Jones of The Monkees has died from a heart attack at 66. I just met him again at the recent Autograph Show in Burbank. These are the photos that I took on February 12, 2012, and will post them again here. If you asked me that day which celebrity I met would be dead by the end of the month, I would have not chosen Davy. I probably would have chosen Martin Landau or Piper Laurie, both in their 80s.

The Monkees were really the last music group from the 1960s where all of the members were still alive. Most other groups have either had numerous personnel changes or at least one member dead. Now that claim has to go to Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young or something...
