Davy Jones of The Monkees passed away due to a heart attack down in Florida at the age of 66.

Ringo Starr and The Monkees, Pizza Hut Commercial,1995.

The character of Pavel Chekov (Walter Koenig) was added on Star Trek in late 1967 in response to the popularity of The Monkees' Davy Jones, and the character's hairstyle and appearance are a direct reference to this.
Not sure how many people are aware of this, but, when the Beatles debuted on The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964 that Davy Jones was also on the same show appearing in the musical "Oliver" and performing an act from it

Will Davy Jones be buried in his hometown of Manchester, England?

My favorite Monkee was Mike Nesmith. I think Davy will be buried here in the U.S. His immediate family is here.
