The Monkees Davy Jones Dead at 66
An official from the medical examiner's office for Martin County, Florida confirmed with TMZ they received a call from Martin Memorial Hospital informing them that Jones had passed away.
Jones joined The Monkees in 1965 ... along with Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork ... and together they churned out a bunch of hits including, "Daydream Believer," "Last Train to Clarksville" and "I'm a Believer."
The group was initially cast by TV producers who wanted to create a scripted series about an actual rock n' roll band.
Davy's last performance was on February 19th in Oklahoma -- the night before, he performed at BB King in NYC ... and he looked totally fine.
Jones is survived by his wife Jessica and 4 daughters from previous marriages. more on this story
