Davy Jones Dies, Davy Jones, the mop-topped leader of 1960s pop band The Monkees, died Wednesday of a massive heart attack. Jones was 66.

His publicist, Helen Kensick, said the singer died in Indiantown, Fla., where he lived.
With an infectious smile and easy humor, the diminutive Brit played the Paul McCartney role in the Beatles-inspired quartet, which also included Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz and Mike Nesmith.
Jones sang lead on some of the group’s biggest hits, including Daydream Believer, which reached No. 1 on the charts.
Davy Jones continued to stay busy after The Monkees, doing music gigs and attending collectors’ shows. Here he’s at the Hollywood Collectors and Celebrities Show in 2009.
Jones, who like his bandmates had continued to perform, had dates scheduled for March.
