Singer Davy Jones, best known as a member of the Monkees, has passed away at the age of sixty-six.
CBS Miami has confirmed Jones has passed away from a heart attack early this morning at Martin Memorial Hospital.
Jones joined the Monkees in 1965 with Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork. The group was originally inspired for television after filmmakers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider watched The Beatles‘ film A Hard Day’s Night. The sitcom ran for two seasons from 1966-1968, amassing fifty-eight episodes.
Davy Jones is survived by his wife, Jessica Pacheco, and four daughters from previous marriages.
