ARRey sez: Jones was British, but the Monkees were pure Hollywood, California, USA.

My mom will be so sad. I remember the Brady Bunch episode with him where Marcia fights tooth and nail to get him to perform at her school dance...classic.

Well, there goes another piece of childhood. Never missed their show, and Daydream Believer still brings me back to those days, in an instant. RIP, Davy.

To suggest that Nesmith and Tork had "some musical experience," implying that Jones was without any, is hardly accurate. Before being selected for the Monkees, Jones appeared as the Artful Dodger in the London production of Oliver! He recreated the role in the Broadway version, and was nominated for a Tony. I'd call that musical experience. Consider Yourself as having underestimated Davy's talent and credentials.
