Trivia: Rodney Bingenheimer , in the 60s, was best known as the stand-in for Davy Jones of the Monkees.
There are numerous breaking news reporting on Davy Jones' death, but everyone seem to point to TMZ as the source. They also broke Michael Jackson's death, which, at the time, I had never heard of TMZ.
I leave you with US Magazine's coverage:
He was a daydream believer.
Davy Jones, the lead singer of beloved TV singing group The Monkees, died Wednesday at age 66, his rep confirms to Us Weekly. "He passed away in his home in Indiantown, Florida this morning, of a heart attack," the rep said in a statement. (TMZ first broke the story.)
The British 1960s pop idol passed away at Martin Memorial Hospital in Stuart, Florida, an official confirmed to the site. The circumstances of his death are not yet known.
