Monkees' Davy Jones, 66 Dead Of Heart Attack
Jones was 66.
At the height of their popularity the 1960s British singing quartet sold more than 50 million records.
Formed in 1965 for the TV show of the same name, The Mokees hits included "Daydream Believer," "Last Train to Clarksville," "I'm a Believer," and "Pleasant Valley Sunday." They also charted with the theme song from the show.
The group disbanded in 1971 but in 2008, Yahoo Music named Jones the top teen idol of all time.
