I don't know what I would have done without the Monkees in my childhood. I was a second generation fan and discovered them at the age of 9 a few years before their comeback on MTV with the series marathon. My first crush was Davy Jones and i didn't even realize he was 30 years older than I. Davy and the Monkees brought sunshine into otherwise dreary days for me. I feel like a piece of my childhood and a piece of myself has died. I can only imagine how his family and close loved ones must feel. You are free....RIP Davy. I will never forget you and will carry you on through your music and shows to my children.
