Well, I was definitely a Monkees fan. It was very weird that one of my neighbor's looked just like Mike Nesmith (he even wore a knit cap). I don't remember what night they were on, but we (my sister and I) would go next door to the neighbors' house (they were a very young couple, so they like the show as well) and watch the show each week. I was in what was then called junior high, probably 8th or 9th grade, and I do believe that my first crush was on Davy Jones (I really didn't have any crushes on any of the Beatles at that time).
Years later, Davy actually recorded one of the songs that my family owned the publishing rights to (but for the life of me, I cannot remember the name). It was on the B side of one of his hits as an individual artist (maybe Rainy Jane, but not sure).
He was 66, died
