If I may paraphrase George Harrison, as far as I’m concerned, there won’t be another Monkees reunion as long as Davy Jones remains dead.
Yes, Davy Jones passed away early this morning in Florida.
Of course, as I noted in a September 2010 post in this blog about Jones' February 9, 1964 Ed Sullivan appearance, Jones realized that he and his contemporaries were getting old. This is what he said:
Ringo Starr sings, ‘I get a little help from Depends.’
In addition to Oliver! and The Monkees, Jones appeared in other productions, including numerous guest apperances on televisions shows.
My unfortunate mashup of the day - Original tweet here. If you missed it, my somewhat more serious post on Ubergate is here.
