RIP Davy Jones (1945-2012) of The Monkees

News has come that Davy Jones of '60s pop sensation The Monkees has passed away at the age of 66. He suffered a heart attack.

When I was in the fifth grade, my classmates and I discovered The Monkees through the miracle of television reruns. So it was only natural a few of us would start a tribute band -- cleverly named "The Monkees II." Our one and only public performance, at the school's fifth grade talent show, was a spectacular disaster.

Farewell, Davy. You will be missed.
