Peter Tork posted on Facebook, “It is with great sadness that I reflect on the sudden passing of my long-time friend and fellow-adventurer, David Jones. His talent will be much missed; his gifts will be with us always. My deepest sympathy to Jessica and the rest of his family. Adios, to the Manchester Cowboy”

Mike Nesmith commented “Today is a sad, sad day. Rest in peace Davy Jones…”

Micky Dolenz wrote “I am in a state of shock; Davy and I grew up together and shared in the unique success of what became The Monkees phenomena. The time we worked together and had together is something I’ll never forget. He was the brother I never had and this leaves a gigantic hole in my heart. The memories have and will last a lifetime. My condolences go out to his family”.

Davy Jones passed away today in his sleep at his home in Florida from a heart attack. He was 66.
