Hello fans,

Boy did today's celebrity take me back. I must've been four
or five years old when the Monkees were big and I remember
always fighting with my friend Linda Kelly over who was 
more in love with Davy Jones... and of course we both made
claim to being his girlfriend.

It still is hard to believe that Davy is in his 60's... so
let's check up on Davy Jones.

Be Well,
Anisa

                     DAVY JONES
http://www.celebritynooz.com/watn/davy_jones.html


BIRTH DATE: December 30, 1945, Manchester, England



CLAIM TO FAME: Well unless you're very, very young you will
know Davy for his role as the cute, little one in 'The 
Monkees'.  And if you're slightly older then you may know
him for his role in the stage production of 'Oliver'.


FAMILY LIFE: Anita Pollinger (January 1981 - 1996) (divorced)
Linda Haines (October 1968 - c. 1975) (divorced)

His daughters' names are Anabel, Talia, Sarah, and Jessica.

Dated: Lulu (singer, dated 1966)
Sally Field (actress, dated 1966-67)
Deana Martin (daughter of Dean Martin, dated 1967)


INFO: Davy Jones began working as a professional actor as 
a teenager, on Britain's long-running soap Coronation 
Street. He worked often as a child actor, but his real 
yearning was the race track. He dropped out of school at 
14 to become an apprentice jockey, but his success as an 
actor compelled him to give it up. At 15, he originated 
the role of Artful Dodger in the London premiere of Oliver!.

TRIVIA: Height is just 5' 3" 

Because of his popularity with the Monkees, another singer 
named David Jones was forced to change his name to David Bowie.

Appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964 with the 
cast of 'Oliver' (as the Artful Dodger). This is the same 
night The Beatles made their legendary debut.

Nominated for the Tony Award in the early 1960s - he played 
the role of the Artful Dodger in 'Oliver'.

Celebrated his climb as a performer on his first American visit 
(touring with 'Oliver!') by having steak at every meal for a 
month, "including breakfast." He'd never had it growing up.

In 1967, Variety reported that the hectic pace of Monkees 
stardom had left Jones exhausted, and that he would make no 
personal appearances for at least several weeks. Only years 
later, in Jones' autobiography, did the truth come out: He 
had received his draft notice, and immediately gone on a fast, 
reducing his frame to a scrawny 109 pounds by the date of his 
induction. As he had hoped, Jones flunked the physical, and 
successfully sidestepped the Vietnam War.

His popularity with teenage girls led to the casting of look-
alike Walter Koenig by the producers of "Star Trek", who were 
looking to attract a younger, more female audience.

Shares a birthday with fellow Monkee Michael Nesmith.

Initial Salary for "The Monkees" $450/episode

Got a DUI in 1994

For his 50th birthday, Jones got his jockey's license in 
Pennsylvania, where he now lives.


WHERE IS HE NOW: Davy is still singing and acting. You
may have seen him on a commercial or two.

He's also involved with Kohl’s Cares For Kids. Davy 
teamed up with author Sandra Boynton to create a book and 
song titled "Your Personal Penguin" to support the cause. 


Still recording too... Davy's latest release is a new CD 
in 2008, Incredible Revisited.

Has a home in Beavertown, Pennsylvania.
