Davy Jones Dead At 66

The Monkees singer Davy Jones has died at the age of 66, TMZ reports. A rep for Jones revealed that he passed away Wednesday morning after suffering a heart attack.

The singer is survived by his wife Jessica and four daughters from previous marriages. TMZ confirmed the news of Jones' death with an official from the medical examiner's office for Martin County, Fla.

As part of the cast for the NBC sitcom "The Monkees,"Jones joined the band with Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork in 1966. The group's single "I'm A Believer" was the top charting track of 1967. Over the course of its career, the band collected an array of accolades, including two Emmy awards and a number of Billboard hit singles and albums. The Monkees embarked on a reunion tour, sans Nesmith, in 2011 celebrating 45 years together.
