High of His Life: Hey, hey he was a Monkee! People say he monkeed around! He’ll just keep on singing…oh wait no he won’t. He’s dead. Regardless, being in the pop group The Monkees was certainly his biggest accomplishment. He sang lead vocals for the group and he was a total teenage heartthrob –major chick magnet back in the day. Even after the group disbanded, he still remained popular during his solo career. He was apparently famous enough to make quite a number of cameos on various television shows and movies. Or maybe he was just the butt of the joke…
Low of His Life: Despite the major success and continued popularity of the song “Daydream Believer,” Davy Jones was in a band created for a television show…and it was The Monkees! Although they were popular at the time, the Beatles they were not, no matter how hard they tried to be. They were just wannabes. His cameo in the movie The Brady Bunch Movie was him totally making fun of himself and his lack of importance in a modern world.
People Who See Him as a Hero: Marcia Brady, your mom, the other Davy Jones, monkeys.
