2. David Bowie.
3. A German hardcore band formed in 2007.

1.Davy Jones (born David Thomas Jones December 30, 1945 in Manchester, England, died February 29, 2012 in Miami, Florida) was an actor and singer, best known as a member of The Monkees.
From 1965 to 1971, Jones was a member of The Monkees, a pop-rock group formed expressly for a television show of the same name. With Screen Gems producing the series, Jones was shortlisted for auditions, as he was the only Monkee who was signed to a deal with the studio, but still had to meet producers Bob Rafelson’s and Bert Schneider’s standards. As a Monkee, Jones sang lead vocals on many of the group’s songs, including “I Wanna Be Free” and “Daydream Believer”. Davy met Laramy Smith in 1967, introduced by Eirik Wangberg (then a producer and co-owner of Sound Records). Laramy and Davy co-produced The Children, an Austin Texas group Davy discovered while on tour with the Monkees. A single was released on Laramie Records entitled “Picture Me”, which reached Billboard at number 2 with a bullet.
After the Monkees went off the air, the group disbanded. However, Jones continued to perform solo, while later joining with fellow Monkee Micky Dolenz and songwriters Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart as a short-lived group called Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart. He has also toured throughout the years with other members as various incarnations of the Monkees.
