Really sad about the death of Davy Jones. The Monkees were the first band I was ever obsessed with. And they were the first band I saw in concert. In 1985, when I was 8, my dad took me and a friend to see Gary Puckett, Herman’s Hermits and the Monkees at the local college basketball arena. I still have a little button from the show. I remember that it was 4 bucks and I lost it within minutes. My dad kicked down for another one.
I’ve never stopped liking the Monkees. I think they’re great. RIP, Davy Jones.
Maybe the next blog post won’t be an obituary. That would be cool.
