    I just saw the article and came here to post. Glad that there are folks here who remember the Monkees. RIP Davey.

    I always liked him best of the Monkees. Even if he was too short. RIP

    RIP, Davey.

    I saw the Monkees twice in 80's. It was always a fun concert. My sister and collected their records in the 60's, and always watched their TV show..

    I loved the Monkees, Daydream Believer was the first single record I ever bought, and I got to see Davy Jones onstage in Grease. He was funny and charming.

    RIP, Mr. Jones. You will be missed.

    One of my ex's best friends is a big Monkees fan. I remember sitting him down and showing him their movie, Head, which he had never seen before. That's still one of my favorite movies for when I just want to watch something and not have to think about what I'm watching.

    Aw, RIP, Davy.

    His widow is a flamenco dancer? Present-day?

    Loved The Monkees. In the 70s and 80s when it would have syndication run, I'd over Micky Dolenz (who now looks like the Mayor of Munchkinland). But, Davy's appeal gave the show the lightness and sweetness it needed to thrive.

    Sad news though. I use to watch "The Monkees" all the time as a kid.
    Actually, I knew the real president of his fan club. My mother rented the upstairs apartment in the house of her parents; they lived downstairs. Every day the mailman brought sacks, and I mean sacks, of mail from fans and Helen, the girl downstairs, was supposed to answer it all. She used to get frantic phone calls in the middle of the night from Davy Jones, because she was behind in answering all the mail.

    RIP Mr. Jones.

    So sad to hear. I was quite a bit behind my peers music-wise when the Monkees were at the top, but was quite aware of them because so many girls that I knew were crazy about them. I remember one of my classmates in the 7th grade traced Davy's likeness off one of her fan photos to put on the cover of her book report on "Little Men."

    I liked Micky the best, myself. I was 12 when the show first aired. Never missed it! I remember that Davey was the only one with real music and acting creds. He was the Artful Dodger in Oliver, on Broadway (I believe). Dolenz was on some TV "Circus Boy" show, but didn't sing on that.

    So sad.

    I saw every episode of The Brady Bunch multiple times as a kid, and this is where I know him from. That was one of my all-time favorite episodes.

    R.I.P. Davy. I remember the excitement we all felt when they announced this new TV rock band, “The Monkees.” Good times!

    Mickey was always my favorite when I was a kid, but now that I'm an old hag, I like Peter the best!

    Remember in the TV show, how the girls would always get twinkly-little-star-things in their eyes when they would look at Davy?

    I remember listening/singing to the Monkees all the way from Michigan to Daytona Beach with my friends for spring break in 1983. We lurved them!

    RIP Davy.

    He and his band mates brought my brother and I loads of joy when we were children.

    My bf and I saw Mickey Dolenz 2 years ago and it was amazing the depth of emotions that rushed back.

    It's either a very big ice rink, or there's a lake under there.

    Original-era fan here. I've felt compelled to post several places about this this evening. I saw a sweet tribute Richard Marx posted on YT, read the touching words Mike Nesmith wrote today. And I thought of my Monkees LP records, still boxed away in a childhood home that itself is often empty these days.

    But good memories of that special tween time of life. (Before they called it "tween"!)

    And I was thinking that considering what my later show-biz interests would evolve into, it's not surprising how much I enjoyed their TV show, with its mixture of goofy humor and catchy pop music.
