Boybandobit: Davy Jones

BBC news is reporting the death of Davy Jones, former Monkee and, for one episode, the grandson of Ena Sharples.

Manchester-born, he'd meant to be a jockey. But instead, he became an actor; and that lead to being in a sort-of-answer-to-The-Beatles-in-a-sitcom role in the Monkees.

Perhaps, though, his biggest influence on modern music was by virtue of having nabbed the name David Jones. Without which, David Bowie might never have had to change his name.
