Today is a sad sad day! Lead singer of The Monkee’s, Davy Jones has died today at the age of 66. I am sure most of you have no idea who he or The Monkees are. If not watch Monkees: Season 1 and you will fall in love. They were out around the same time as The Beatles and were often hated on because they weren’t. At the same time they were actual musicians and actors. The Monkees show was and still is super hilarious!
This show means more to me than that. One of my older cousins introduced me to them and she, her younger sister and I fell in love with them. We would watch the shows over and over and dance in their bedroom to the albums. They represent fun and happy times for me. This was something the 3 of us bond over still to this day. We loved The Monkees well past their prime (the same with NKOTB but that is for another time). I have them on my iPod and even watch episodes. Both of my cousins have seen them perform and got Davy Jones to preform at a school dance when we were much younger. It was a dream come true. I can say I am deeply sad I never went to go see him preform and now it is too late. His death today represents more than just a forgotten about star passing but that we need to appreciate the good times now and keep them coming before we have no more!
Bye Bye Davy Jones you will always be remembered and loved by this fan right here!!!
