The Monkees lead man, Davy Jones, has passed away today at age 66. The singer was at Martin Memorial Hospital in Florida on Wednesday after suffering a heart attack.

The British star started his career on television as a child actor on the UK soap opera "Coronation Street".

He found his fame though as the frontman of The Monkees. The band, who also starred in the TV show of the same name, was assembled in 1966 by television producers. Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork were the other three members.

After the show was cancelled the band continue to tour until 1971. They have several international hits and sold 65 million albums and singles. "(Theme From) The Monkees", "Last Train to Clarksville", "I'm A Believer", "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone", "Pleasant Valley Sunday" and "Daydream Believer" are a few.

Davy Jones went on to tour solo after the band stopped touring. His last performance on stage was February 19th in Oklahoma.

Hear "The Monkees" on Bandstand along with other hits from the 50's and 60's.
