Sixties heartthrob Davy Jones dies of heart attack

Davy Jones, the former lead singer of the Monkees and first-crush fodder for a generation, died of a heart attack today at age 66 in Indiantown, Florida. The diminutive Manchester native appeared on “Coronation Street” and trained as a jockey before being selected to join the prefabricated rock group assembled in Los Angeles in 1965.
