Davy Jones died yesterday at his home in Florida aged 66 years old. Born in Manchester in 1946 Davy was first seen as Ena Sharples Grandson on Corrie. He went on to play a part in Z cars (A UK 60's cop series)
The producer of the film "A Hard Days Night" featuring the Beatles (I think it was Richard Lester) an American, decided to make a TV series about a band and modelled them on the Fab Four. The result was the Monkees. Now Love them or Hate them they became part of the sixties music even if they did not play their own instruments etc.:-)
The shows look very corny now (They did then too!) I was never a fan of the Monkees but they were a part of the 60's music scene.
