Davy Jones, singer, actor, member of the '60's quartet The Monkees, passed away this morning at the age of 66 at his home in Florida of a heart attack.
As a little girl back in the '60's, I had a tremendous crush on this man. I loved his accent, the way he sang, his corny acting, and his smile gave me the giggles. My very first true love. Except that I sometimes would "choose" his friend Peter Tork as my boyfriend, because there were only three of us girls in my family and there were four Monkees, and Peter or Mike was usually left out when we played house and chose our "husbands."
Such a simpler time. And that's what he represents to me, that simpler time and place.
May he rest in peace.
