This Monkees gone to Heaven
So, farewell Davy Jones, on St David's Day of all days: singer, actor, jockey, would-be heartthrob and teenage 'grandson' to Coro's Ena Sharples. I grew up on The Monkees TV series and still have an LP. In fact, I'm going to play it now. The first four singles - Last Train to Clarksville, (I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone, I'm a Believer and A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You - are still pretty thrilling.
