gao81: Crystal Girl: AiryAnne: I saw them back in 1986 or 1987. "Weird Al" opened.

I also saw a show from that tour. I had several people in college argue with me that I must have been remembering it wrong.

I too saw a show from that tour, at Six Flags Astroworld. I still have the program somewhere.

CSB - during their resurgence in '86/'87, I couldn't get enough of their music and tv show. My parents suggested I write a letter, which I did, as best as any 6-year old could do at the time. I don't remember how much time passed, but one day I came home to find an envelope addressed to me. Inside was an autographed picture of Davy, Micky, and Peter, with a note that read, "Dear gao81, thanks for the support!" I remember being in shock. Recently, my parents told me that before mailing my letter, my Dad had included a note of his own, telling them how much of a fan I was, etc.... I still have the picture too.

Stayed up 24 hours to watch the show marathon on MTV. My mom teased me and said she watched the series when it was on the air origionally.

Peter was my favorite, but this makes me sadder than it probably should.

If anyone has XM or Sirius, the 60s channel is honoring him. Pretty cool.

Watchman: gilgigamesh: Basically, the Beatles from Sgt. Pepper on could never have been realized without Ringo on the drum kit.

Heck, you can go back even further to Revolver.

I agree, but I erred on the side of being conservative.

My sister and I saw the mOnkees about 10 years ago. Halfway through the set Davy says that jimi Hendrix once opened for them. Then the band jammed on purple haze for a minute or two. Awesome. Great tv show too.

This guy got so much ass!

All the lovely people. Where do they all come from?

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.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves here.

While it is jarring, and sometimes seems unjust, or strange, this transition we call dying and death is a constant in the mortal experience that we know almost nothing about. I am of the mind that it is a transition and I carry with me a certainty of the continuity of existence. While I don't exactly know what happens in these times, there is an ongoing sense of life that reaches in my mind out far beyond the near horizons of mortality and into the reaches of infinity.

That David has stepped beyond my view causes me the sadness that it does many of you. I will miss him, but I won't abandon him to mortality. I will think of him as existing within the animating life that insures existence. I will think of him and his family with that gentle regard in spite of all the contrary appearances on the mortal plane.

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.

From Peter Tork's Facebook page:
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.

Can't believe it...Still in shock...had bad dreams all night long.

mjjt: Which was right. And realized that whole generation of kids grew up listening to "The wheels of the bus go round and round" etc when they were in the car, whereas it never occurred to me that that was what you were supposed to entertain them with.

Instead I just listened to the stuff that I loved, and she got a vital education in important lessons. I mean think of lyrics like "and she'll have fun, fun, fun till her daddy takes the T-bird away" - far better than churchy sermons about telling me the truth



That's awesome. My parents never listened to music, so I am not very into anything pre-early 80s since I was born in 1975. I've found anything I do know way after my time, after being exposed to it by friends. I dated someone whose father played music for him and took him to the library and showed him books about the musicians of the 60s and 70s. Guess what? One of the most talented guitarists I have ever met and also an excellent singer. I just scream into a microphone, essentially, since I don't have the deep background. I think it's really important to teach kids about music just like you did.

Tork and Nesmith were "Real" musicians, Dolenz was a child actor who could write a song and play some guitar, and Jones could sing.

dryknife: His mum invented Liquid Paper.

That rang a bell. (ffs, the odd stuff I remember)

In 1951, Bette Nesmith Graham invented the first correction fluid in her kitchen...

Graham's son Mike Nesmith, guitarist/singer in the popular 1960s pop band The Monkees, was the primary heir to her fortune upon Graham's death in 1980.
