Born December 30, 1945, in Manchester, England, David Thomas Jones was already famous in his home country when he joined the Monkees. He had starred in the musical “Oliver!” on the London stage as the Artful Dodger and was nominated for a Tony for his performance on Broadway, according to a biography on a Monkees fan site. Indeed, he got a taste of the Beatles’ popularity when the “Oliver!” cast appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show” on February 9, 1964 – the date of the Beatles’ first appearance.
Married three times, Davy Jones – survived by his third wife, Jessica Pacheco, and four daughters from his two previous marriages. In May 2011, the singer said he was having some of the happiest times in his life with Jessica.
He told Britain’s Daily Mail last year that he used to be 5 feet 4 inches tall, “but I’ve lost an inch.” He posted photographs of his horses, his grandchildren and himself on his blog, “Keep up with Jones,” sometimes also posting messages to fans.
