Monkees Singer Davy Jones Has Died

The lead singer of famous 60’s band, The Monkees, 66-year-old Davy Jones has passed away earlier today from a heart attack.

A rep for the British singer has confirmed the news to TMZ. The music icon passed away in his Florida home earlier this morning.

Davy Jones was the lead singer and considered the heart-throb of the rock quartet. The remaining original members of the band are Micky Dolenz, 66, and Peter Tork, 70.

The Monkees were formed in 1965, and recorded mega hits like “Daydream Believer,” “Last Train to Clarksville,” and “I’m a Believer.” They also starred on their own NBC Sitcom from 1966-1968.

Some of the original members teamed up last year for a reunion tour but ended up scraping some dates for what was believed to be fall-out amongst members of the group.

Jones is survived by his wife, UK host Jessica Pacheo, 33, and his four daughters from his two previous relationships.

Davy Jones was still performing up until his last day. He did a show on February 19th in Oklahoma, performing hits like “Daydream Believer” and “It’s Nice to Be with You” and he still sounded great.
