The Monkees Davy Jones and Neil Young
The Monkees Davy Jones passed away last week. He was 66.
Jones was a singer in The Monkees, a pop-rock group formed expressly for a television show.
Interestingly, Neil Young performed on a number of The Monkees tracks, including "You And I" (above on YouTube).
Neil Young played on the following Monkees sessions in 1968:
- Carlise Wheeling Version 4 (5/3) (No audio survived)
- You and I, That's What It's Like Loving You (unrel.), Smile (5/10)
- As We Go Along (5/30)
- You and I (6/19) "Double blistering guitar solo"
- You and I (6/21)
And, Stephen Still was once on the short list for being a member of The Monkees. Imagine that...
