Yet another piece of my childhood is gone, Davy Jones has died at age 66 in Florida.
It’s hard to describe how big the Monkees were to my age group. My green Monkees shirt was one of my most prized possessions. I liked them even though we all knew they didn’t play their instruments (at first, that changed over time) or write their songs. We all moved onto other artists, but even today I still enjoy their music and so do a lot of other people.
