He died in his sleep at his home in Florida. His publicist, Deborah Robicheau, said he had a massive heart attack.

The band, who included musicians Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork, were famous for hits including Daydream Believer and I'm a Believer.

The Monkees were an American pop band, assembled in 1966.

RIP :(
Surprised he was only 65, that would make him about 20 when The Monkees were put together.

RIP. Wasn't a great fan on the Monkee's butloved a few of their songs, I'm a believer, one of them.

Also.. Don't laugh. (I know you all will!!) My mum liked the Monkee's in the 70's and 80's. Anyway I was born in 1978 as the first child. Mum then went on to have 7 more children. Anyways, at Child 3, (Girl 2) Mum gave birth in 1982 to Rebecca, Dad was pissed as usual (Wetting the babies Head) and turned up at the hospital. He presented her with a Monkee's tape, as a gift. Mum was not impressed to say the least!! She was expecting a kiss, cuddle, and maybe a few flowers or choccies. All she got was Dad ballbagged, with a Monkee's tape (cassette) lol!!!!

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I used to tape record the songs from their TV shows when I about 15 or so - but they weren't regarded as 'cool'.

I have a 'best of' Monkeys CD somewhere, probably play it every five years, skipping the duff tracks. :):

Played and sang along to a lot of their stuff as a student in the 80's and vague memories of them as a small child. Loved them. Even own some bootleg live concert vinyl LP's not the greatest I admit but lovely nostalgia. RIP

Never was keen on the Monkees but it's still sad news when a light goes out in the music world.
RIP Davy Jones.

You can download 'Head' off the last of the torrent sites - great movie, and the pinnacle of the Monkees stretch into Beatles territory.
