In Memorium: Davy Jones

The Monkees #4 (Sept.1967; Dell)
Tenuous comic book connection notwithstanding, I had to post this. What a bummer! Singer Davy Jones of The Monkees has died of a heart attack at age sixty-six at his home in Florida. Jones was most famous for his role in the pop group The Monkees, which was put together in 1965 for the TV show of the same name. Their many hit songs included "Daydream Believer," "Last Train to Clarksville," "I'm a Believer," and "Pleasant Valley Sunday" and they also charted with the theme song from the show. The Monkees sold more than 50 million records and yes, they even had their own comic book series from Dell which ran for seventeen issues between March 1967 - October 1969. The Catacombs extends its sincerest condolences to his family, friends and worldwide fans.
