#1 in 1967
Davy Jones was born at 20 Leamington Street,
Openshaw, Manchester, England. From 1966 to 1971, Jones was a member of
the Monkees, a pop-rock group formed expressly for a television show of
the same name. Jones sang lead vocals on many of the Monkees'
recordings, including "I Wanna Be Free" and "Daydream
Believer" On the morning of February 29, 2012, Jones went to tend
his 14 horses at a farm in Indiantown, Florida. After riding one of his
favorite horses around the track, he complained of chest pains and
difficulty breathing. He was rushed to Martin Memorial South Hospital in
Stuart, Florida, where he was pronounced dead of a severe heart attack
due to atherosclerosis.
