R.I.P. Darling Davy

Oh God, I loved him.

The Monkees were a created group, created to piggy-back on the popularity of the Beatles. Davy was the cute one (like Paul) and the only Brit.

I loved all the Monkees but Davy was created to win the young girl's hearts. So beautiful, sweet voice and possibly the first love of more American women than anyone.

Davy died today from a heart attack and I feel bereft. He was supposed to be forever.

He will be in my heart.


  1. Our adolescence is slowly dying. One by one, the stars that filled our dreams are winking out.

    It's inevitable, but always a shock. God bless you, Davey, may you rest in peace.

  2. Ditto on what you ladies have said.

    I had a fondness for Peter as the dorky one but Davy was the spunky one we all loved most. I think for me it was a mixture of his cuteness, Britishness and shortness. I especially loved the part of the line at the beginning of Daydream Believer - 'don't get excited man, it's cause I'm short I know'

    You and me Davy, you and me. He will be sadly missed for sure.

    My Mum met him in Townsville once when she was cleaning his room (he was sharing iwth Peter). She got him to sign a picture for me and he even spelt my name wrong - I'm going to treasure it even more now.
