WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- At a time when teenagers were rebelling against their parents, there was one thing they could agree on. Watching "The Monkees" on TV. Davy Jones told AP Radio in 1992 that moms and dads could enjoy the series because it was "family entertainment." He called it a "family sedative." The series lasted only two years, but Jones, Mike Nesmith, Mickey Dolenz and Peter Tork continued to record hit after hit, including "Last Train to Clarksville," "I'm A Believer," and Jones' number-one song, "Daydream Believer." But Jones felt they didn't get the respect they deserved and he predicted that they'd never be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Jones has now died of a heart attack. He was 66.
