RIP Davy Jones

Showing both my age and range of taste (lack of?).

Davy Jones is Pavel Chekov

Davy Jones died today. Bumming me out. I loved the Monkees on TV and still will listen to their songs when I just want something light. Davy was probably the best known of them all and a very good vocalist. Michael Nesmith is / was probably the most talented though.

Star Trek tie in – Davy Jones was the inspiration for Pavel Chekov.**

  1. Just found out as I got home. This sucks I loved the monkees. I’ve got one of their greatest hits on disc and I still play it. Wish I could find the show on DVD.

  2. Jeez, the resemblance is pretty amazing. They could be brothers.

    It’s very sad. As we get older, more and more of the personalities from our childhood will be dying.

    Whenever I go to karaoke, I always sing “Day Dream Believer”

  3. Yeah but Chekov would have said The Monkees were created in Russia. šŸ˜€
