R.I.P., Davy Jones (30 December 1945 – 29 February 2012)

I was in intermediate high school when Monkees fever hit the United States (for the second time around), and I pulled out my mother's vinyl records, bought every new single and album, and watched reruns of The Monkees faithfully on MTV. One of my favorite memories of those years was seeing the band play during their 20th Anniversary Tour in 1986, which was a ridiculously fun and fabulous concert.



Less than four years ago, in the fall of 2008, I had the good fortune to see Davy Jones perform solo (and here's my mini-review).

It's sad news that Davy Jones now is gone. The end of an era indeed. *holds up virtual lighter*
