Monkees star Davy Jones dies at 66

Posted on 29 February 2012 by wisdom

Monkees star Davy Jones Davy Jones, an actor-turned-singer who helped propel the TV rock band The Monkees to the top of the pop charts and into rock ‘n’ roll history, died Wednesday in Florida. He was 66.
His publicist, Helen Kensick, said Jones died of a heart attack in Indiantown, Florida, but she had no further details.
Christine Weekes, administrative manager for the medical examiner’s office in Fort Pierce, Florida, near the Martin Memorial Hospital South where the performer had been taken, confirmed the death.
Jones, born in Manchester, England, became the principal teen idol of the rock quartet featured on the NBC comedy series “The Monkees,” which was inspired in part by the Beatles film “A Hard Day’s Night” and ran for two seasons from the fall of 1966 to August of 1968.
Although not allowed to play their own instruments on their early records, Jones and his three cohorts — Micky Dolenz, Mike Nesmith and Peter Tork — had several hits that sold millions of copies, including “Last Train to Clarksville” and “I’m a Believer.”
Jones got his start as a young actor, at the age of 11, on the British soap opera “Coronation Street” before landing a role as the Artful Dodger in a West End production of “Oliver!” He went on to originate that role for the Broadway production and earned a Tony nomination
But Jones gained stardom after answering a casting call for a new TV series being created about the zany misadventures of four Beatles-like rock musicians called The Monkees. Two members of the group, Nesmith and Tork, were actual musicians with performing and recording experience, while Jones and Dolenz were primarily actors who dabbled in music.

windows-8-logo
The new logo now carries a Window instead of flag which had been used since decades. The new logo is designed by US agency Pentagram who was confused why the Window’s logo carries a flag being named “Windows”. So they finally decided to come up with a logo having window-looking design. The new design will replace the logos that have been used since Windows 3.1.
Sam Moreau, Principal Director of User Experience for Windows at Microsoft said, “The Windows logo is a strong and widely recognized mark, but when we stepped back and analysed it, we realised an evolution of our logo would better reflect our Metro style design principles and we also felt there was an opportunity to reconnect with some of the powerful characteristics of previous incarnations,”
