Tribute To Davy Jones

Monkees singer Davy Jones passed away Wednesday after suffering a heart attack. He was 66.
Davy was a singer, actor, and here's something you might not know about him, he was a jockey. Yep, before he became a teen idol in the sixties and seventies with a group called the Monkees, he planned to become a horse racing jockey. But instead he followed his dream to be an entertainer. Lucky for us that he did because for many of us he was our first teen idol crush.
These's no doubt a lot of us will be humming, "Daydream Believer" today as we write.
Goodby, Davy. We will always remember your talent, and your sweetness.
Rest in peace.

Sigh. I found out about it yesterday. Yes, he was cute, but I had a thing for Peter. :) So sorry to hear Davy's gone now. The song I thought of when I heard was Last Train to Clarksville. RIP Davy.
