    Remembering Davy Jones

    A gifted artist & a forever heart throb

    I remember back in high school when the Monkee's were being advertised, I believe you were able to win a ticket to Clarksville to meet them. I always made sure I was home to watch them when they were on tv. I was able to hear them when they sang in Duluth,MN. On February 7, 2009 Davy came back to Duluth. I went back stage after the concert on my own to get an autograph, not for myself but for a Cancer Benefit. I found where his room was and just as I was going to knock on his door, he was opened it. I was speechless! He was just as adorable as he was when I was in high school. I had a white hat with a pink "bling" ribbon on the and asked him to sign it and what it was for. In his cute British accent said "oh my dear, if I would have know, I would have brought something more for you." Of course I had my camera available able & had someone passing by take these photo's and also signed my symphone ticket & my program. A funny story after having my photo's developed was when my 8 year old grandson saw the picture of my giving Davy a kiss on his cheek, asked me if grandpa knew. Since that my grandkids request that I play the CD and their favorite song is: "I'm gonna buy me a Dog." And several of them know all the words especially Davy's parts.
    I have been sad after hearing the news of his death. He brought much joy to all of his fans with his music and acting.
