Davy Jones (I) left home to become a jockey. While he was an apprentice he was encouraged to go into acting and got a role in a production of "Peter Pan" From there he played on "Coronation Street" and "Pickwick Papers" before landing the role of the Artful Dodger in "Oliver!". This job took him to America's Broadway where he was discovered by Ward Sylvestor and brought to Los Angeles. From there he was given a role in "The Monkees". With this show he made 58 TV episodes 9 albums, a TV special, and a movie before calling it quits in the early 70s. In the mid-70's Davy re-joined fellow Monkee Micky Dolenz and songwriters Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart to make an album and do some touring. Davy has gone on to perform in more plays including "The Real Live Brady Bunch" and "Oliver!" (again) and has also fulfilled his dream of becoming a jockey. He rejoined the Monkees for touring from 1986-89 and 1996-97.

  • Was given a videotape copy of his Ed Sullivan appearance (with the Beatles also on the program) by CBS; Jones treasured it years later.
  • Was nominated for Broadway's 1963 Tony Award as Best Supporting or Featured Actor (Musical) for playing the role of the Artful Dodger in 'Oliver!'.
  • Shares a birthday with fellow Monkee 'Michael Nesmith' (qv).
  • Ranked #9 in TV Guide's list of "TV's 25 Greatest Teen Idols" (23 January 2005 issue).
  • Celebrated his climb as a performer on his first American visit (touring with 'Oliver!') by having steak at every meal for a month, "including breakfast." He'd never had it growing up.
  • When Jones first visited home after becoming a Monkee, his father refused to let him inside until he got his hair cut - twice. Jones' reaction to this was to buy the family a new house, "so now he has to let me in!"
  • His daughters' names are Anabel, Talia, Sarah, and Jessica.
  • Has a seasonal home in Beavertown, Pennsylvania, USA.
