Tributes pour in for Monkees' Jones

Tributes have been paid to Monkees lead singer Davy Jones, who died of a heart attack at the age of 66.

The Manchester-born star, who lived in Hollywood, Florida, was taken to hospital suffering from a cardiac arrest, but could not be resuscitated.

Davy found fame as the frontman of the 60s group The Monkees, who had nine top 40 hits including I'm A Believer, Daydream Believer and Last Train To Clarksville.

The star's former bandmate Peter Tork said in a statement on Facebook: "It is with great sadness that I reflect on the sudden passing of my long-time friend and fellow-adventurer, David Jones.

"His talent will be much missed; his gifts will be with us always. My deepest sympathy to Jessica and the rest of his family. Adios, to the Manchester Cowboy. Peace and love, Peter T."

On the social networking site, fellow Monkees star Mike Nesmith said: "So many lovely and heartfelt messages of condolence and sympathy, I don't know what to say, except my sincere thank you to all. I share and appreciate your feelings."

He added: "David's spirit and soul live well in my heart, among all the lovely people, who remember with me the good times, and the healing times, that were created for so many, including us. I have fond memories. I wish him safe travels."

Jones, who was best known as the frontman of the band put together to star in their own TV show, had an early start in showbusiness when he appeared as Ena Sharples' grandson in Coronation Street.

He also appeared in Z Cars before leaving showbusiness to train as a jockey but came back to acting, playing the Artful Dodger in a stage production of Oliver!
