RIP Davy Jones
Yup, the above photo is of the album -- autographed by all four of the Monkees in pink felt-tip marker. Davy even signed his name with a flower for the dot on the "i." Aw. Cute.
So, once upon a time, Davy Jones smiled at me when I was only old enough to blow spit bubbles back at him. And thus I feel rather sad to hear of his passing at only 66. Part of my childhood got pinched away this week, and I find myself humming "Shades of Gray" at odd times.
Goodbye, Davy. Thanks for all the smiles.
