Remembering Davy Jones
Davy Jones Leapt into Heaven Rest in Peace
It's sad to hear about Davy Jones passing away of a heart attack at the age of 66. Davy was the cutest member of the Monkees back in the 60's.
I remember the Monkees TV show and never missing an episode, to me they were as popular as the Beatles and I loved them just as much.
One day my mom came up to me and told me she bought tickets to the Hollywood Bowl for me and several of my friends to attend a Monkees concert, I screamed so loud and so long. I was appx. 14 years old and my excitement couldn't be contained.
At the concert our seats were not the greatest but it didn't matter to me, I was watching the Monkees LIVE!!!! I couldn't hear them singing due to all the screaming from the crowd, and myself, but that didn't matter either, I was watching them LIVE!!!! :)
The most memorable moment came when the concert ended, Micky jumped off the stage into the water fountain! Oh, the crowd went crazy.
This was the first, of many more to come, concerts I had ever been to. I've been star struck ever since.
Did you ever see the Monkees live? This is what I looked like when the Monkees were at their highest popularity and the concert I went to. Black and white pictures rule :)
Rest in Peace Davy 2-29-2012....Leap into Heaven
