Greatest rendition I ever heard.  This was during the Persian Gulf War


I agree Doug, I've never ever heard anyone else sing it as well as she did.

RIP

No doubt you're humming Daydream Believer or Last Train to Clarksville as you read this.

The lead singer of The Monkees, Davy Jones, has died.

His rep tells TMZ that he died after suffering a heart attack this morning in Florida. Jones was 66.

TMZ confirmed Jones' death with an official from the medical examiner's office for Martin County, Fla.

Jones is survived by his wife Jessica and four daughters from previous marriages.

Davy Jones is gone.  The last "show" I remember seeing him on was The Weakest Link.  They did a celebrity charity show.  He kept plugging his website davyjones.com.  The "moderator" even started calling him davyjones.com when addressing him.

Man ... now I need to go and get my fix of the Monkees.

Me too! I had a complete set of Monkees bubble gum trading cards that you would assemble into a picture of the group like a jigsaw puzzle. Took me forever to get the whole set!

I'll have to make sure to play the Monkee's themed slot in Vegas next month in his memory.

I saw them in 1998 at Hershey Park. It was a fun concert, and recently saw them perform on The View.
I always thought that Axel Rose got his moves from Davy.

Just came upon this post. Very sad. From what I have seen and read, besides being a fun entertainer, he was a decent human being. Watched all the shows growing up. Thanks for the memories!

'BEASTIE BOYS' MCA
Dead at 47
BREAKING NEWS
"Beastie Boys" rapper MCA -- real name Adam Yauch -- has died.

In 2009, MCA announced he was being treated for a cancerous parotid gland and a lymph node (below). He has since undergone surgery and radiation therapy.


So far, it's not clear if the death is related to the rapper's battle with cancer.

Russell Simmons' website GlobalGrind.com first reported the death. We have spoken to people independently connected to the rapper who also say he is dead.

MCA co-founded Beastie Boys in 1979 with Mike D, and Ad Rock ... and went on to churn out some of the most iconic albums in hip-hop ... including License to Ill, Paul's Boutique, Check Your Head and Ill Communication.

The group has won multiple Grammys and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.

The Beastie Boys haven't performed live since Bonnaroo 2009 -- and during their last ever performance, MCA appeared noticeably less energetic than his group mates.

 

MCA recently became a vegan at the recommendation of his Tibetan doctors.

The Beastie Boys' most recent music video was released last year for the song "Make Some Noise" -- and it stars a laundry list of A-listers, including Rashida Jones, Will Arnett, Rainn Wilson, Amy Poehler, Steve Buscemi, Kirsten Dunst, Zach Galifianakis, Orlando Bloom, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, and Jack Black.

 

Yauch is survived by his wife and daughter. He was 47.
