From CBS Miami

I remember watching the antics and music of “The Monkees” like it was yesterday. Hell, I grew up listening to those guys (I’m 67)… Davy was only 66.  The older you get the more people you know who pass on… ain’t that the way.
Makes me hope I might get to hear him play again in the sweet by and by, ‘less the Devil gets me first… hum, wonder if old Davy went down to the crossroads… he had the talent.  Hope he ain’t having to bust his chops with ol’ Scratch! (Just funnin’ with you Davy).
He’ll REALLY be missed! . . . EDITOR
