Always known as the prettiest face of the Monkeesthe one that made Marcia Brady and other teenaged girls swoonDavy Jones and his bandmates battled critics to win recognition for their music, but fans couldnt have cared less who wrote, played or sang Monkees songs. In fact, the boys did write some of their material (as much as most commercial pop/rock acts did) and all of them were proficient musicians. They each went on to other musical projects post-tube-stardom, and Davy Jones in particular kept churning out singles until the late 80s. Then came Jones good-humored performance in 1995s Brady Bunch Movie in which he grunged up Girl, and got all those baby boomer gals screamin again. Now its your turn.
