Davy Jones Interview Screen Cap

Screen cap from YouTube clip

Here’s an interview in which Davy Jones talks about The Beatles on a variety of topics. His solid John Lennon and Paul McCartney impersonations. Playing “Penny Lane” 5,000 times. The Beatles’ similarity to The Monkees “[they] were the first manufactured group, not The Monkees… they dumped Pete [Best], they brought in Ringo, they dressed them in the same suits, the same bowl [haircut].” George being underrated as a musician. How John’s death impacted him [“same as when my father died”], and more.

Our Classic Video from 2006 is from something called The Bob Show, which dubs itself as “The Revolution of Television.”

Jones was born December 30, 1945 and died February 29, 2012 of a heart attack at age 66.

The Monkees celebrated their 50th Anniversary in 2016. Their recent studio recording (Good Times!) was their first in 20 years and includes vocals from Jones. The album received great reviews and Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork did an extensive victory lap tour.
