They knew how to make manufactured bands in those days ... Their songs were written by some very good writers, which as one of he things that made the Monkees so good. They worked so well a a team, too; they were all completely barmy, which was very appealing to a teenager in the 60's. Either modern made-up bands are rubbish, or I grew up when I wasn't looking.

So sorry - and rather unnerved - to hear this. Just dropping dead unexpectedly at 66 (which happened to Derek Bell of the Chieftains at that age too) is sad & scary. I loved the Monkees when I was young, and never gave a toss whether they were a "manufactured" group or however the hell they came to meet. So what, who cared??

They were a lot of fun, put up a good show, had their own individual talents, and were more than the sum of their parts. Davy just always made me smile, and Daydream Believer is still one of my favourite songs. Another stone in the foundation of my youth tumbles away. Rest In Peace, Davy.

When I was in junior high school the local radio station ran a contest/petition drive to canvass their listeners on which was the better band, the Monkees or the Beatles. Seems kind of silly now . . .

There is a fair bit of truth in the Monkees being tagged as the original "Prefab Four", but keep in mind that not only did they have some high-powered talent in their corner (such as Neil Diamond and Boyce & Hart), they were musicians in their own right. Mike Nesmith had already established himself as a musician and songwriter, and Peter Torkelson (a/k/a Peter Tork) had been a fixture on the Greenwich Village folk music scene. That's where he came to know Stephen Stills, and when Stills was passed over for a role with the Monkees (they thought he would look too old to attract the intended demographic) he recommended Torkelson.

Like someone said above, growing older is tinged with sadness when one of the mainstays of our youth passes away. RIP Davy.

Anybody remember the doctor show Ben Casey? I hadn't known he'd made an appearance on it, not too long before the Monkee madness hit, judging from the age he looks. There's a page in the Guardian ("Davy Jones: A Life In Clips") which shows part of it. His appearance on the Brady Bunch episode was fun too (he reminds me so much of Brian Cox in that scene) (science presenter, not the Bond baddie). Now you can *really* wallow in nostalgia -

SA, I'm glad you posted the link to the Monkees singing "Riu, Riu Chiu."   It shows very well how good they were musically, at least after they got out from under the thumb of the managers, etc., who tried to keep them in the box of teenage TV pop.

In the later years of their career, when they were allowed to play their instruments on their records, they showed that they really were pretty decent musicians.   I don't know the extent to which they grew into that as their teen idol careers progressed and the extent to which they were just allowed to display what they already had, but even Jerry Garcia acknowledged that "their records are pretty good."

I am heartbroken, Davy Jones was my first crush. I didn't have a favourite that changed by the week but he had a special place in my heart. Although they were a manufactured band there are so many songs that stand out in my mind just as much as the Beatles ever did if not more. Stepping Stone was a particular favourite, Look Out Here Come Tomorrow, Little Bit Me a Little Bit You, Last Train to Clarksville. I did get to see Davy, Peter and Mickey when they were on tour in the UK in the 80's and it was money well spent and I still came away totally in love with Davy Jones. RIP Condolences to the family he will be missed.

In the interest of completeness...

Davy Jones, Monkees Singer, Dies at 66
By MARGALIT FOX
New York Times
February 29, 2012

Davy Jones, a singer and, by long-held public consensus, the handsomest and most popular of the Monkees, the collectively young, longhaired, wildly famous and preternaturally buoyant pop group of the 1960s and afterward, died on Wednesday in Indiantown, Fla. He was 66.

The apparent cause was a heart attack, his publicist, Helen Kensick, said.

Created in 1966, the Monkees comprised Mr. Jones, Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork. The group sold millions of records. Its recording of "Daydream Believer," by John Stewart, became a No. 1 single, as did its recording of "Last Train to Clarksville," by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, and its cover of Neil Diamond's "I'm a Believer."

Though the Monkees officially lasted only until the early '70s, they reconvened sporadically for decades. For much of that time Mr. Jones also toured as a solo singer-songwriter; among his last performances was one on Feb. 18 at B. B. King Blues Club & Grill in Manhattan.

For all the Monkees' chart-topping acclaim, the group never pretended to be anything other than what it was: a smoke-and-mirrors incarnation of a pop group reminiscent of that mop-topped one from Liverpool, created for a benignly psychedelic American TV sitcom.

Broadcast on NBC, "The Monkees" lasted just two seasons, from September 1966 to March 1968, and featured Messrs. Jones, Dolenz, Nesmith and Tork as members of a freewheeling, fun-loving, beach-house-dwelling, up-and-coming pop group. The show won two Emmys in 1967: for outstanding comedy series and, to the director James Frawley, for outstanding directorial achievement in comedy.

To this day, its theme song is hard-wired into the baby-boomer brain:

Hey, hey, we're the Monkees,

and people say we monkey around.

But we're too busy singing

to put anybody down.

While the four did much of their own singing, they were relatively unbusy playing. Though each played an instrument — growing more proficient with time — most of the instrumentals on their albums were supplied by studio musicians. (On one album, "Headquarters," released in 1967, the Monkees played their instruments themselves.)

The group's critical reception was not unsurpassed. In 1967, in an article about one of the Monkees' relatively rare live concerts of the period, at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, The New York Times said:

"Frequently during the performance, sound that resembled the lowing of a sick cow hovered over the stadium. This turned out to be one of those horns often heard at Shea Stadium during baseball games. It didn't seem to hurt the musical evening."

But the critics could not dim the profuse enthusiasm of fans, who were overwhelmingly young, female and shrieking — tweeners before the word was applied to that demographic.

This adulation (and in later years nostalgia) kept the Monkees going, in various incarnations, on and off for decades. Last year three-quarters of the group, absent Mr. Nesmith, briefly toured Britain and the United States before cutting the tour short because of unspecified internal dissension.

The only actual Englishman of the four, Mr. Jones was inclined to elicit the loudest shrieks of all. An index of his appeal was his guest appearance on a memorable episode of "The Brady Bunch" from 1971 entitled "Getting Davy Jones." In it, Mr. Jones, playing himself, saves Marcia, the family's eldest daughter, from social ruin by attending her prom.

Television and the stage were actually Mr. Jones's original vocations.

David Thomas Jones was born on Dec. 30, 1945, in Manchester, England. A child actor, he appeared on "Coronation Street," the British soap opera that went on the air in 1960 and is still running, and in the police drama "Z Cars." After his mother's death when he was a teenager, he abandoned acting. Slight of build — he stood not much more than 5 feet tall in his prime — he began to train as a jockey.

Lured back into the theater a few years later, he played the Artful Dodger in the West End musical "Oliver!" When the production moved to Broadway in 1963, he reprised the role (billed as David Jones), earning a Tony nomination as best featured actor in a musical.

Appearing with the cast of "Oliver!" on "The Ed Sullivan Show," Mr. Jones had a transformative moment. After the cast sang, he heard wild cheering. But alas it was not for them: it was for the Beatles, also booked on the show that day.

"I thought: Is that what happens when you're a pop singer?" Mr. Jones told The Palm Beach Post in 2004. "I want to be part of that!"

His work on Broadway led to guest roles on a few mid-'60s television shows, including "Ben Casey" and "The Farmer's Daughter." He was signed to a contract with Columbia Pictures/Screen Gems Television, which produced "The Monkees."

Mr. Jones, who had homes in Hollywood, Fla., and Beavertown, Pa., spent his later years touring; acting occasionally on television shows like "My Two Dads" and "Boy Meets World"; raising horses; and recording, including the well-received solo album "Just Me" (2001), which featured his original songs.

Whatever Monkeedom still attached to him (and it was considerable) did not dismay him.

"People ask me if I ever get sick of playing 'Daydream Believer' or whatever," he told The Chicago Daily Herald, a suburban newspaper, in 2006. "But I don't look at it that way. Do they ask if Tony Bennett is tired of 'I Left My Heart in San Francisco'?"

Mr. Jones's first marriage, to Linda Haines, ended in divorce, as did his second, to Anita Pollinger. His survivors include his third wife, Jessica Pacheco; two daughters from his first marriage, Talia Jones and Sarah McFadden; two daughters from his second marriage, Jessica Cramar and Annabel Jones; three sisters, Hazel Wilkinson, Lynda Moore and Beryl Leigh; and three grandchildren.

The other three members of the Monkees also survive.

Perhaps Mr. Jones's most enduring legacy takes the form of a name. The name belongs to another English musician, who burst on the scene some years after the Monkees. This man, too, had been born David Jones. But thanks to the Monkees' renown, he knew he would have to adopt another name entirely if he was to have the hope of a career.

So he called himself David Bowie.

The four of them each had an individuality possibly because originally they were manufactured but each had something special. Mike Nesmith had the smouldering eyes and Texan drawl that I enjoyed in many of his songs, Mickey the zany one with the distinctive voice on so many of the hits, Peter for his boyish innocence and Davy for his vocals and cherub good looks.

The world was a great place back them with them in it.
