    I was a teenager when the Beatles came to town and were on the Ed Sullivan Show. The Monkeys came later but I do remember them. Oh, to reminisce the good times of the past. We did enjoy their music.

    "Daydream Believer" was part of the soundtrack of falling in love with my first husband. Like all the girls my age, The Monkees was must see TV.

It's a shocking reminder that we all are getting old.

    I really liked a lot of the Monkee's songs. My favorite was "Day Dream Believer". I heard that he was singing at a club or some other music setting about 11 days before his sudden onset of his heart attack. I feel for his family as it was completely unexpected.

    YES, IT WAS SAD NEWS AND I USED TO PUT THEIR CASSETTE IN AFTER I GOT HOME FROM SCHOOL EVERY DAY. I LIKED ALL THEIR SONGS. I AM ONLY 10YRS YOUNGER THAN DAVY WAS. I HAD LIKE A CRUSH ON HIM AND DAYDREAM THAT HE WAS SINGING THE SONGS TO ME. RIP AND YOU WILL BE NOT FORGOTTEN

    It is so sad! I had such a crush on him when I was a kid! I have been singing "Hey Hey Were The Monkeys" all day. He influenced me to play the guitar as I wanted to play the song "I Want To Be Free". Wasn't a popular song but it was my favorite sung by him. He will be missed!

RIP my sweet man, you brought such good memories to this old bird.
