I met Davy JonesSaturday 11th February, 2017
Nov 2008 I attended the 40th anniversary event of the monkees movie HEAD. There I met Davy Jones… Peter Tork.. Bobby Hart… Chip Douglas….June Fairchild and Gary Strobl( met Gary for the 2nd time). It was a great evening. I was seated in the front middle row with my group. We sat with the camera crew.
A few nights before that I attended Davy and Gary Pucket’s concert. I had a blast. I sent a note to Davy before the show and he sent a message back to me. He said I was a sweet heart of a lady and not to change.
I do have photos just not sure yet how to add them here.
My Davy Jones/ Nancy Smith StoryMonday 9th May, 2016
There was a girl named Nancy Smith, a fan of Davy’s, who was disabled, and in a wheelchair. She showed up in Toledo, Ohio at “Kips” to see Davy at a solo concert, with his band “Toast” in 1979. I think she came with the Fan Club group that chartered the plane for the weekend, to see him – I’m not sure!
Davy’s “Flower”…!!Monday 9th May, 2016
Davy had a special fondness for flowers – they reminded him of his Mother!! He lost her to emphysema when he was just 14 years old!! In the early Monkee days, and later too, he would often draw a flower (looking something like a daisy) next to his autograph!
DAVY was one of the most generous People I ever knewMonday 4th April, 2016
Over the years I photographed DAVY’s Solo Tours and Monkee Tours. From 1986 at Hershey and finishing it up in the same town on the 2011 Monkees Tour. I also shot His 1998 Teen Idols Tour with Bobby Sherman and Peter Noone at Six Flags in Jackson NJ. DAVY always mailed Me a package at Christmas time. In 2007, He mailed me a signed Monkees logo w/ a CD not in the Rhino catalog.
