Monkees drummer Micky Dolenz: Davy Jones was like my brother

OHMYGOSSIP — Micky Dolenz has said that Davy Jones was like a brother to him. The Monkees drummer paid tribute to his former bandmate on Piers Morgan Tonight, saying that he had hoped news of Jones’s death yesterday at the age of 66 was a hoax.

“David and I sort of hit it off pretty early and quickly because we both had histories in showbiz,” Dolenz said.

“I had a series when I was a kid called Circus Boy, and he’d been on Broadway doing Oliver, so we sort of had a lot in common. Over the years, y’know, our families and he and I… we bonded. I mean, after 47 years working with people like that… he was like my brother, we were like siblings.”

Dolenz said that Jones’s passing had come “right out of the blue”.

“No-one ever suspected, you know, what can you say?” he added. “I’m just [in] total shock. I’m still just a little bit numbed by it all.”

When asked by Morgan how he had heard the news, Dolenz explained: “My wife called me this morning… She was out shopping, and she got a call from her sister who said she heard it on the news.

“Frankly, I thought it might have been another one of those stupid internet joke hoaxes. I hoped it was, but obviously it was not.”
