The past few months have been a particularly tough time for the music industry as the death of The Monkees’ lead singer came after those of Etta James and Whitney Houston.

Davy Jones, 66, died after a heart attack while in his stable in Florida on the morning of February 29. He was found in his car suffering from chest pains and was promptly rushed to a hospital in Stuart. However, he was pronounced dead due to severe heart attack.

His sudden death has a considerably strong impact for someone that belongs in a band that has almost never gotten any musical respect in the industry.

Jones first gained the public’s attention as an actor where he was even nominated for a Tony award for his part on the Broadway in Oliver!. Afterwards, and on the same time that The Beatles are gaining popularity, he became part of a singing group that has their weekly sitcom called The Monkees.

The funeral in Florida is expected to be private but there will be public services in England and New York to honor Jones.

The singer’s death seems to hit many people so hard, even those who are not claiming to be a fan, perhaps owing to the Monkees’ influencing generations. The height of their career came in the 60s but reruns of their show were aired in the 70s.

Jones propelled to popularity during the 60s as The Monkees TV show became a household name. Though the series only lasted for 2 years and the band eventually broke up, they have left chart-topping hits such as “Daydream Believer” and “Im a Believer”.

At 18 years old, Jones had his first performance in The Ed Sullivan Show where he sang his piece from Oliver!. Incidentally, that same night The Beatles also performed for the first time in the show.
