Micky Dolenz on Davy Jones: “He was the heart and soul of the show”

On Wednesday, the passing of legendary musical icon Davy Jones shocked and saddened fans across America, and across the globe. Having garnered most of his fame as one of the founding members of the band “The Monkees” – and as a star on the television series by the same name – Jones is dead of a heart attack at the age of 66.

This evening Piers Morgan is joined by Jones’ longtime bandmate and friend Micky Dolenz, who shared his memories of the late international heartthrob:

“He got this advice from someone and went on to be just an incredible talent and a wonderful performer and such a lovely person and such a wonderful friend and the – a heart of gold,” remembers Dolenz. “And would just do anything for you, anything, anywhere. And had lovely children who I feel, you know, I have so much pain for right now.”
