Davy Jones Dead - Davy Jones of The Monkees

Fittingly, Maureen McCormick, also known as Marcia Brady from The Brady Bunch, has spoken out in the wake of The Monkees’ singer’s death, paying tribute to the man who will forever be—at least partially—remembered as the dreamiest TV prom date ever to hit prime-time.

“Davy was a beautiful soul who spread love and goodness around the world,” the erstwhile Brady Bunch star said in a statement. “He filled our lives with happiness, music and joy. He will live on in our hearts forever.”

The singer began to complain that he was not feeling well and was having trouble breathing. Paramedics were called and Jones was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. Authorities say there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

Jones is survived by his wife Jessica and 4 daughters from previous marriages. He was 66-years-old. Jones was married to Jessica Pacheco — his 3rd wife.

Jones joined The Monkees in 1965 … along with Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork … and together they churned out a bunch of hugely popular songs including 3 number 1 hits — “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. But the group exploded, and Jones in particular became a Beatles-caliber heartthrob.

The Monkees songs were covered by huge bands like Coldpay, and Smash Mouth’s version of “I’m a Believer” was famously featured in “Shrek.”
