    The Monkees have not been voted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nor, according to a couple articles I just read, ever been given close consideration for that honor. (Goes back to the ol' "those boys weren't playing their own instruments till thus-and-such a time" argument.) Should the Monkees be voted into the R & R Hall? What sayest thou, WS?

    I'd vote yes, they should be, btw.

    RBBM Oh Cubby! Mine were Johnny Quest, Shaun Cassidy and Davy Jones. (Kind of heartening to learn I was not the only prepubescent girl with a crush on a cartoon character!)

    I am strangely shaken up by this news. DH is baffled and giving me a wide berth as I play Monkees songs over and over, bless his heart.

    Ok - I got one for all y'all -

    Found this this afternoon and, at first, I didn't realize who "he" was - just that he looked familiar. Well, remember Bobby Sherman? OMG - welp, yep its him. And, the shots of Bobby in the theatre - oh my Lord, he's so made up, he looks like a Ken doll. I laughed and laughed and watched this about 3 times.

    Have fun!

    Not a Davy song, but perhaps the oddest and certainly one of the best songs the Monkees ever recorded; from the 'Head' OST album, "Porpoise Song," written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King:

    The irony of it all which I had forgot till I was reading today. When the Beatles appeared the 1st time on th Ed Sullivan show. Davy was also there waiting to go on stage to preform with the London group doing Oliver.
    TYBEE U WILL ALWAYS BE MISSED AND LOVED.

    Unhappy

    My daughter called me in tears to tell me the news. She used to drag me to his shows. She went to see him last year in Florida and is happy she made the trip.

    We've seen Davy several times, alone, and with the Monkees, as well as with Peter Noone and Bobby Sherman. I'm always in awe of these "old men" who have much more energy than I, and they are older - not by much, but still older.

    They put on great shows, always. I can't remember exactly the last time I saw Davy in concert but it wasn't very long ago. I have a picture of the two of us together. He looking good, I looking not so good.

    While his death is a great shock, I'm glad he didn't suffer, and that he went quickly. I've seen far too many people linger.

    Rest in peace, Davy. Thanks for the memories, the laughs, and the music.
