In Memoriam

Tribute page for those who left us much too soon...

Davy Jones of The Monkees passed away suddenly on February 29, 2012 - a sudden and tragic loss
My tribute to Davy on the Oldies Connection blog - Davy Jones: Farewell, Daydream Believer
Jeff Barry produced several tracks for The Monkees, including "I'm a Believer" and "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You." He also wrote a few songs for the group, including "She Hangs Out" (video below).

The Ronettes

Estelle Bennett (The Ronettes)
(1941 - 2009)
"All of the Ronettes are, of course, close to my heart, having recorded one of my favorite songs. Their sound was special, and Estelle was a big part of it all. She will be missed."
