According to the TMZ website The Monkees singer Davy Jones has died at the age of 66 in Martin County, Florida. So far no cause of death has been released for the singer who is survived by his wife Jessica and four daughters from previous marriages. Above is the English born Jones and the Monkees doing  lead vocals on their 1967 number one Billboard hit single "Daydream Believer." Mike Nesmith, fellow Monkee, made this announcement today upon learning the sad news of Jones' passing: "While it is jarring, and sometimes seems unjust, or strange, this transition we call dying and death is a constant in the mortal experience that we know almost nothing about. I am of the mind that it is a transition and I carry with me a certainty of the continuity of existence. While I don’t exactly know what happens in these times, there is an ongoing sense of life that reaches in my mind out far beyond the near horizons of mortality and into the reaches of infinity. That David has stepped beyond my view causes me the sadness that it does many of you. I will miss him, but I won’t abandon him to mortality. I will think of him as existing within the animating life that insures existence. I will think of him and his family with that gentle regard in spite of all the contrary appearances on the mortal plane. David’s spirit and soul live well in my heart, among all the lovely people, who remember with me the good times, and the healing times, that were created for so many, including us. I have fond memories. I wish him safe travels."
