How could anyone not fall a little in love with Davy Jones? He was so small and cute. And unlike many other bands, with the Monkees we got to see our darlings on television every week. Much appreciated in the hinterland of pop.
And now Davy’s dead. Far too young. It was interesting to see the reactions on facebook. People I’d have expected to be too cool or simply not old enough turned out to be fans. I’m totally with the woman who said she wanted to marry him. A daydream.
