Monkees star Davy Jones Dies at age 66

I was shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Davy Jones of the Monkees. I was just chatting with him a couple of weeks ago at the Hollywood Show in Burbank, and he was just as vibrant as ever. He suffered a heart attack this morning in Florida. Jones is survived by his wife Jessica and four daughters.
