Man, this is really saddening. Hate to think of my world without one of its daydream believers. "We are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams." RIP, Davy.
 
one of my first teenage heart throbs! my friend had beatles wallpaper, and begged her mother to change it to the monkees - she would'nt. so sad.

So young. May he indeed rest in peace. thanks for the memories.

Awww. Wow. That's too bad. I have very fond memories of the Monkees. RIP, Davy.
 
Those Monkees sure had some wonderful tunes. RIP DJ
 
RIP Davey.

Oh man, now I do feel old, one of my favorite groups back in the day, sad,sad,sad

I had such a crush on him when I was a kid. :(
 
Awwww.. so sad. He had such a great voice.

I FAR prefer The Monkee's music over the Beatles and for the fact that he was in the greatest "pop" (ie not Rock) band of that era (maybe ever) he deserves a place in music folklore.

That and because he caused another Davy Jones change his name, to David Bowie.

RIP Davy.
 
May his soul rest in peace in heaven.
 
If there was a place called heaven for human souls, God would vacate asap
 
Very sad to hear. Daydream Believer, Last Train to Clarksville, and I'm a Believer have always been regulars on my play list. Rest in peace Davey - thanks for the great music that will last forever.
 
Very sorry to hear this. I remember watching the Monkees when I was growing up. They were great fun. RIP
 
We will miss him but his music will live in us forever
 
Today there is no black or white, only shades of gray.
 
Happy Memories of singing along Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory Davy.
 
R.I.P Davy Jones ......thank you for the memories
 
Ditto, I loved you growing up....I had all your records and watch the show.
 
That really, really stinks! Be at peace Davy. You brought me many, many daydreams!

Very sad. A sign of the times, I learn breaking news from either G+ or Fb.
 
RIP Davy...thank you for all the music and the memories
 
What an absolute bummer...
I had the biggest crush on him. ;(
 
As a kid growing up in the '60's, we were all daydream believers in our own way. Godspeed Davy.
 
My very first celebrity crush. Rest peacefully, David.
 
The first single I ever bought with my own hard earned babysitting money was Day Dream Believer, I loved the Monkeys and had my first proper crush on Davy Jones, sad, sad news.
 
Is that Justin Bieber's Father????
 
I am so bummed! never met tha guy ..but the Monkeys sure entertained me in thier own unique fashion back in the days of no internet ..you rok davey ..peace be with you!
 
His passing brings back so many memories of childhood days and growing up. Weekday afternoon television just before dinner was served. Those 2 classic songs: "Daydream Believer" and "I'm a Believer" will last forever.
 
I'm so saddened by the news of his passing, such a sweet guy. I had a major crush on him back in the 70's. RIP Davy.
 
Used the song " I'm a believer" to base the Shreck stories on, RIP Davy!
 
Its truly ashame my mom grew up listining to them. R.I.P
 
Noooo even though im not from that generation the monkees are amanzing!!!!

RIP Davy.
You were my favorite of the group.

It's so sad my parents and I both loved the bad and they grew up with it
 
not sure if it was ringo that was beetles ringo .... def davey,mikey, peter, no paul or ringo duh
 
How sad, and how well I remember singing along with my daughters when "I'm a Believer" came on the TV.
 
to paraphrase the pixies "this monkee's gone to heaven".
 
A part of a fun new movement in musical history, who will be remembered with great fondness x
 
So sad!! I loved the Monkees growing up. RIP Davy

Rip Davey Jones, was always a huge fan
 
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I lost my Mom last year and she was 66...thats way too young. R.I.P -
 
:( Watching the Monkees was something I remember well from my childhood. G'bye, Davy.
 
So very sad. I loved the Monkees when I was a little girl. Bless you Davy Jones.
 
So sad. I had such a crush on him when I was a kid.
 
Will he get as much publicity as Whitney??? If not, why?
 
Aww. That's sad. Crazy. I remember watching re-runs of The Monkey's TV show on Nick at Nite. That's how I even knew anything about them.
 
Between my wife and I we had most of the Monkees albums, and made it a point to catch the TV show every week. Rest In Peace.
 
Sad, he was my fav Monkey. R.I.P.
 
He was an entertainer..family man..husband..Fortunate to do the work he loved..sing and dance. I enjoyed him!
 
He is going to be sadly missed, But I know I will never forget him...I am so lucky to have the Monkee Theme on my phone, so I get to hear it everytime someone sends me a text...A Davey Jones Fan Forever!!!
 
My wife will be heartbroken when she hears.
 
I predict a return of the vulcan hair dou..

My name is Jean and every time I heard "Cheer up Sleepy Jean" I liked to think Davey was
Singing to me! I will miss you Davey. RIP!
 
Enjoy what comes next Davy.... nice job this round.
 
Davey was my first real crush. Would always race to watch the Monkees! RIP!
 
Noooooo! RIP, Davy. Thanks for all the catchy tunes...
 
Very sad news not old at all.. I loved watching the monkeys as a kid.
 
Hey Hey we're the Monkees! Used to Loooove that show and my 33 and 1/3 album~ Here's to Davey Jones!
 
RIP Davey. You had a great impact on music. Hey David Bowie ended up David Bowie vs. David Jones thanks to you. Thanks for the music.
 
Big part of my teenage years. Thanks for all the top class entertainment - RIP
 
This is so sad! I was so in love with him when I was growing up.
 
He took the last train to Clarksville....so sad.
 
+Marco Calibani Okay, seriously... I truly believe that even Mr. Jones--wherever he may now be--is laughing and laughing at that comment of yours.
 
The first band I ever played with in 1966 ( I was 12 ) covered Last Train To Clarksville. They were huge when I was a teenager. Sad to see him gone.
 
Damn I don't believe Davy is gone. I used to watch the monkies growing up.
 
Sad...some of my finer childhood memories are with the monkeys playing in the backround...
 
Davy, may you find your way home, love and peace.
 
I loved watching the Monkees every Saturday morning as a kid. Very sad news. Davey Jones is gone, but not forgotten
 
I watched you as a kid and enjoyed it. R.I.P. Davy :'(
Q Bick
 
awwwwwwww! that's sad. don't know who the Monkees are, but still very sad. :(
 
Lol like pirates of the Caribbean Davy Jones
 
Loved the show as a kid.
 
He was why David Bowie changed hs name. Underrated band
 
R.I.P Davy. We will all miss you. But at now you will be a daydream believer. Looking down from us heaven.
 
Bye Davey, you were one of the greats. (in my time)
RIP.
 
Oh and I loved your show as a kid LOL

Translate
 
No more monkeying around :( RIP Davy
 
So sad to hear this. Love the Monkees music.....My prayers are with his family and friends......
 
Sad when anyone dies, but the Monkeys were a joke!

man i loved watching the Monkees on tv as a kid, they didn't take themselves too seriously & considering the way big media worked in those days, they did a cool job. RIP Davey Jones.
 
Yes I know who the Monkeys were, the three song mentioned above the photo were hits those days & I also remember Davy Jones of the Monkeys. I was still at school those days. Condolences to family & friends. He will be remembered by us here in South Africa who new his music. The Lord will be with u all.
 
Wow. Looks like our years just do not last now a days. What the hello.
 
RIP..
I was a fan in the 60's..great band !!
 
Rest in Peace Davy and Thankyou
".. and our good times start and end"
 
I could sing his songs; this is from THE day!
 
Used to watch him when my kids were growing up. Loved it!
 
I'll always remember him from Escape from witch mountain.
I'm deeply traumatised at the news of his passing. Much loved but also maybe a reminder of how old I am getting.
 
that is very sad we will miss him
 
so sad he will be dearly missed!
 
Time to watch "The Monkees" tv-show again...
 
Can't we swab Marcia Brady's cheek and grow a NEW Davey Jones from the DNA? She promised to never wash it.
 
NOT SOMEONE FROM THE MONKEES MY DAD LOVES THAT SHOW.
 
One of my favourite when I was a kid. I watched the Monkees every day after school. A sign of reaching that age when your childhood heros are all slowly leaving.
 
R.I.P. Davy. You will be greatly missed by all your fans.
 
Not a big oldies fan but they r deff an awesome band and its a shame to c this news
 
i was listening a while ago to NPR and that's where i heard the news
S Chapo
 
RIP Mr Jones. Thanks for ur musical talents.
genesee
 
He's your real father +Elyse Sauber... sorry you had to find out like this.
 
Condolences to the family. Sad sad.
 
I enjoyed his music and his TV show. RIP
B C
 
Sad...
 
My deepest prayers for the family!
 
Davey, Peter, Mickey and who?
 
It was such a zany show! I watvhed it too as a kid.
 
Awwww....he will be missed.
 
I used to run home after scool to watch the Monkeys, to bad.
 
We just dealt with the death of Whitney Houston and both deaths touched us as part of americana
 
Such a shame I adored Davy when I was little :-(
 
isnt he that octopus face guy from pirates of the carribean
 
Wow, he looked really young!
 
I'm going to miss this tambourine banging Monkee. I loved this show. I always felt like if Scooby Doo was live action in the 70's it would be sort of like The Monkees, which would have been of been odd since I was born in the 80's.
 
Another one gone.
 
So, does he throw himself in the locker or is there someone else appointed?
 
Oh. Glad I'm not dead, I guess.
 
Didn't know he was still alive
 
A friend of mine has a photo with him she just put on facebook ,I had a serious crush on him when I was young
 
I remember singing "Hey, hey we're the Monkees" and "I'm a Believer" along with him. RIP Davey!
 
Never heard if them either.... But its a pretty funky name. Haha.... r.i.p.
 
I remember watching The Monkeys as a kid He will be missed
 
I may only be 25,but growing up I remember watching the show all the time with my mom.We still catch the reruns sometimes. Monkeying around in heaven! R.I.P Davy
 
I Remember the "Monkeys" I use to listen to their music when i was 12 yrs. old....
 
I am sorry to heard that missed him so much as long a time of singer. 
 
Ah man this really suxs! That dude was as much as an icon as the Beatles or Jacksons or the Partridge and Osmonds. Those of us who grew up on 60s and 70s Sitcoms know what time it is.....🎉🎥👷
 
"To a day dream believer and a homecoming queen... " Love ya man!!👸🙇
 
Wow, what a loss. I loved that show "The Monkies" He was also on an episode of the Brady Bunch. Great voice. Epic loss.
 
Rest in peace ... I remember the monkeys.
 
Sorry to see you go. I still have the albums.

Sad.....poor guy you know funny I'm 90s person of year I'm in I'm sure he has alot incomment with me if I knew more about him I'm sure I would like guy as bro things but sad see a believer go away like another has known of.
Even sad see same of faded person I though ones was a guy has full of spirit up.
 
I had no idea he was so involved and actually the tv show was such a small small piece of who and what he was.. RIP Davey Jones
 
I loved him and his his group( monkees) over the beatles.........he will be missed......my prayers are with his family and friends
 
you'll be missed.. thoughts & prayers for your family..
 
That's one helluva unibrow. Nevertheless, my condolences to his family and friends. I may have not grown up in the generation of music he was in, but I still enjoyed his music.
 
WE LOVE YOU DAVEY-WE WILL MISS YOU-PRAYERS ARE WITH FAMILY!
 
You were a big part of my young life. Thank you.
