What a shocker...




How very sad. He was only 66, the youngest of them.

I've been miserable all day.

I heard at lunch. The entire table said "Oh, NO!!!!" I thought of you. :(

I'm still in shock. Someone I don't even know sent me an LJ personal note with the words, "I just heard! I'm so sorry about Davy, I know how much you love him."

I was like... o_0

Then promptly googled and found out. D:

*hugs*

Yeah, my first thought was that I'd never have thought he'd be the first to go.

It makes me very sad indeed.

I've been resisting watching Monkee videos all day and now I have and I'm bawling.

Another piece of my childhood has died.

I just wanted to see them all again; I have to dig out the old VHS (never have gotten it on DVD, it's too expensive).

Not so much my childhood, but definitely my late adolescence. :(

I still can't quite believe it, and every time I think about it I get sad all over again, as if the news is brand new.

I know, I kind of feel the same way.

Certainly Davy's never been my favorite, and God knows I got ticked off with him sometimes over the years, still, he did some nice things (for me personally, even), and he was a big part of my life for well over a decade. The Monkees... saved me. Maybe I should actually post a whole entry...

You should. I want to hear the story, if nothing else. And someone else mentioned he was homophobic and racist, if that's what you're referring to, but I didn't know about that, either.

No, I didn't know about that. Never heard anything like that about him, to be honest. I was referring to the snide (sometimes downright vicious and MEAN) comments he'd always hurl at Michael during any of the reunions when Michael chose not to participate...

I didn't know about that, either. And honestly, I have no idea if the other stuff is true. I hope it's not, of course.
