30th December 1945 – 29th February 2012
i cant find any words right now… i read about it just a couple of minutes ago and im still crying. i will add some more and the obligatory youtube vid when it gets better. R.I.P. ;-(
[edit 25th march]
sorry guys that it almost took me a month to complete this post, but you can be sure that i did not forget it but simply did have no time to do it.
anyhow, i bought a whole bunch of new monkees 45s and LPs and some of them have already arrived as you can see in the “latest acquisitions” section.
so, yes, it was quite a shock when davy died in february. the monkees were a part of my childhood, and davy sort of was my crush when i was six or seven years old :-) so it was a bitter fall-back into reality when the news came – the sixties are over, we are not young anymore and lives definitely end at some point.
i guess i havent been so affected by the death of someone i didnt know personally since george harrison died (also an important part of my childhood and youth), but hey, we still have the recordings and the TV episodes from the time when the sun still shone :-) so i did what the vast majority of monkees fans surely did that day and the following days – listened to all their recordings and spinned the records over and over again. then i decided that perhaps this song should be the one to be put here to cheer us up and remember davy. one of my all-time favourites, enjoy!
