SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
Singer and actor Davy Jones (born 1945) died earlier today of a heart attack. The 66 year old icon from the 1960’s became famous for being a member of the fabulously successful MONKEES rock group. At one moment in time, this talented band sold more albums than the BEATLES! Just as quickly, their fame evaporated as teenieboppers began to mature and rock and roll exploded in a thousand different directions.
As for many of my generation, Jones’ death marks an important milestone and serves notice that we are not getting any younger! Carpe that fucking Diem!
