Singer Davy Jones, best known as a member of the Monkees, has passed away at the age of sixty-six.
TMZ reports that a rep for Jones has confirmed he passed away from a heart attack early this morning at Martin Memorial Hospital.
An official from the medical examiner’s office for Martin County, Florida was also in contact with TMZ and has confirmed the news of Jones’ passing.
Jones joined the Monkees in 1965 with Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork. The group was originally inspired for television after filmmakers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider watched The Beatles‘ film A Hard Day’s Night. The sitcom ran for two seasons from 1966-1968, amassing fifty-eight episodes.
Davy Jones is survived by his wife, Jessica Pacheco, and four daughters from previous marriages.
