Play Music In Heaven, Davy Jones

In sixth grade, when the television show started about the rock band, my girlfriends and I spent hours discussing our favorite Monkee (mine: Peter Tork). We bought all their albums, memorized all the songs, waited in line for their movies. We didn't care when we later learned that none of them were very good at playing music when they got together. They were chosen for their chemistry. And boy, did they have it. They allowed us to daydream about love, romance and all the other stuff we didn't really know about yet in sixth grade/Rebecca Nappi, SR End Notes. More here. (AP file photo: “The Monkees,” from top left, during TV show in 1960s, Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith, from lower left, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork pose next to their customized Pontiac GTO)

Question: Anyone have a favorite Monkee who wasn't Davy Jones?
