Davey Jones RIP
Today it was released that Davey Jones of the Monkees had passed away due to a heart attack at the age of 66.
I was to be honest a tad shocked, I always thought that Davey kept himself in reasonably good shape and never took on the excesses of the day.
Now, I'm not inherently a Monkees fan, but this guy was pivotal to getting the whole Monkees thing away from being a US copy of the Beatles and he had stated in a later interview, that in the early times that he felt it was an insult that his fellow members had to mime playing instruments to satisfy the teeny-bopper market that they were sold to.
David was a well known actor in Manchester, UK before he ever found fame as a pop-star.
It was was him and Mike Nesmith that pushed to get the band out of their contract and start writing some REAL music.
The Monkees might have been the first boy-band, but they'd never have sold so many albums without the voice and persona of David Jones.

Re: Davey Jones RIP
Always seemed a nice lad, to me.
Cum dilectione hominum et odio vitiorum
Love the Sinner but not the Sin.
“ For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. “
(and within ourselves)
(Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)
A Feminist is a human being who has lost her way and turned vicious.
If you meet one on the road as you Go your Own Way,
offer kindness but keep your sword drawn.
