Exclusive Update: Davy Jones death
We reported earlier today that Monkee’s frontman, Davy Jones, had died, unexpectedly.
We can now reveal the cause and circumstance of this tragic loss to the music industry.
We spoke earlier with a close friend of the 1960′s rock group lead singer who confirmed that the singer had passed away in his sleep, from a heart attack.
Our source had been a close friend of the superstar for many years, and revealed how Jones had led a healthy, non addictive lifestyle as an anti smoker, and only an occassional drinker.
The source commented: “Davy wasnt a regular drinker, but occasionally, like all of us, he liked a drink. He never smoked or partook in anything that went against his clean image”.
When asked how he had heard the news he said: “I had a message on (social networking site) Facebook from Davy’s ex-girlfriend telling me the news, I was at work and couldn’t believe it, but the next news round on the radio confirmed the news”.
Davy will always be remembered as the fun-loving Monkee who won a place on the Great British wall of fame, and our source reminisced happy times, commenting: “I can remember being out with him on one of the rare occasions he drank. We had been in an Irish bar, drinking tequila and Guinness, and when I enquired as to how he would get home, he answered ‘It’s OK, I have got my horse outside’ which just about summed up Davy!”
Davy Jones will be greatly missed, but will forever hold a stamp on the British music industry.
