On Wednesday, the Monkees' lead singer Davy Jones passed away from a heart attack at the age of 66. Although Jones is mainly known for his musical and TV contributions to pop culture (the Monkees began through a television series), his acting chops lead him to several moments on the big screen.
"Head" was the first time Jones starred in a feature film. The project, which was conceived by Nicholson, Rafelson and the entire band during a drug-fueled weekend in California, made almost nothing at the box office. However, it has since developed a cult following.
After "Head," Jones returned to more family-friendly fare, voicing the character of Jim Hawkins in the 1973 animated film "Treasure Island." In 1974, he did voice work in "Oliver Twist." Decades later, he made a cameo in "The Brady Bunch Movie," a nod to his guest spot on the show in 1971. (Watch above.)
Younger audiences may best know Jones through the song "I'm a Believer," which was re-popularized with the Smash Mouth cover from "Shrek."
Jones is survived by his wife Jessica and four daughters from previous marriages.
