Me too!

Well...not WEEP, but frown a little bit.

I liked having all four Monkees still around and now that's gone.

EDIT: Interesting that you chose "Movies & TV" instead of "Music" - I guess that says a lot about how both of us respectively remember him.

My kids loved the Monkees, mainly because my wife was a huge fan. Say what you will about the band being manufactured, this is too young.

I thought music apparently....and was beaten to the punch if anyone could take care of that thread for me.

I was sad...it was fun music, my wife's a huge fan so she's upset, and my son really liked a couple of their songs.

For my money I always thought HEAD was an interesting (if not very good) movie.

EDIT: God do I type slow! Thanks for taking care of that!

One of my favorite shows on the UHF channel when I was a kid was The Monkees. Such a shame that they were so pigeon holed and not allowed to do their own thing after the show started going south. Davy gave us some fun music, and he had a dance so awesome, Axl Rose stole it.

I always found Davy Jones Locker and Davy Jones (guy from The Monkees) confusing.

Very sad to see this. Big fan of the Monkees. I saw them live a couple of times in the 80s, and even once got to see Davy (playing himself playing himself) in "The Real Live Brady Bunch", which was a lot of fun. Jones always seemed like someone who really enjoyed performing.

I am also sad, having seen the show in reruns when I was a kid (early 70's), really liking the music and seeing them a couple times live.

So, I am making the family listen to my Monkees CDs in the car this week as a tribute (they are not as enthusiastic fans)

I'm not a Monkees fan myself, but one of my best friends is a huge Monkees fan, and has met (and had her picture taken with) Davy Jones; she was devastated.

His cameo on the first Brady Bunch movie was hilarious. GIRL translated well into a hard rock tune for sure.

One weird fact to come of this...I didn't realize David Bowie's real name is 'David Jones.' He adopted his stage name to avoid being confused with the Monkee.

Other weird tie-in....Modern Family picked the worst possible day to have a Monkees joke on their show. The scenario is that two guys dressed as flying monkeys have arrived at the front door for a Wizard of Oz-themed party.

Guy #1: Hey.
Guy #2: Hey.
Guy #1: We're the Monkees.

Given that they delivered these lines in the driest voices possible, it was quite funny.

For anyone interested, Antenna TV (if you have an affilliate in your neck of the woods) is going to be doing a Monkees marathon starting at 5pm Eastern on Saturday 3/3/2012. They're also going to play their movie, Head.

I'm probably going to sit down with the family and watch a few episodes...
