    Talked to a lead guitarist of a local band - guy about twenty. He knows the Monkees music. The Monkees had camera presence and their catchy ditties were hot-sellers. Mike Nesmith - a phenomenal talent.

    Davy Jones had a sweet voice and sang true!

    My memory recall doesn't allow me to remember who was who, put I do remember my uncles and I running to the set when the Monkeys came on. RIP

    I was informed by my wife a little while ago of this: "But he didn't sing Last Train To Clarksville, that was Mike Nesmith."

    I guess this shows our age, and I've been to Clarkesville, but not by train.

    So sad, RIP Davy! Bet that there won't be a week of incessant media coverage on this death. He was not a drug addicted waste of space who had done nothing worthwhile in the past 20 years, nor was he a "Reality Show" whore. He was a bright, funny, talented singer and entertainer who will be missed!

    I've always had a soft spot for the preFab Four. He's on the last train to Clarksville.
