Davy Jones

The Monkees –  end of a lifetime

Years ago when I was a teenager I was bemused by my mother always referring to a recent passing of a film star or singer as being a sad loss as they meant so much. I couldn’t understand how someone who you had never met could have an effect on your life like that. Now I’m at that age where the same thing is happening to me, people who I have never met pass away and I feel emotionally connected to that sad event.

The latest sadness is the passing of Davy Jones from the Monkees  it seemed like he had been in and out of my life since I was a young teenager. Many of their songs would always  be heard every year on different radio shows and were great to listen to at any time which of course would instantly get you singing along, the words were always there in the back of your mind from years gone by.

Only recently Davy Jones was talking in an interview on BBC TV he looked really great and didn’t (in my opinion) look his real age and still retained that sparkle of his youth. His daughter recently stated that her father tried to please everyone and considered that stress would have been a major contributor to his death as he was constantly on the road keeping up with the demands of the music industry. Would he have had it any other way? Often people become so famous due to there real personality and not a ‘mask’ to comply with expectations. I think for all those years we got a lot of the real person someone driven to be the star that so many loved and admired. Thankfully he will live on for many of us through his music and in our memory bringing back carefree times of formative years. Thank you for being that Daydream Believer.
