Jones was born in Manchester, England, on December 30, 1945. Early experiences in television and on stage eventually led him to New York where, at age 16, he originated the Artful Dodger role on Broadway and was nominated for a Tony Award. As a result, he was offered a contract with Columbia Pictures/Screen Gems Television, and The Monkees was created shortly after. Also a musical group, The Monkees’ album sales surpassed all records. The group continues to be a bestseller almost 50 years later, having reunited for tours and other projects in recent years.
Jones has continued his musical success apart from The Monkees, releasing his solo debut Just Me in 2001. The theater also remains in Jones’s blood. He recently received rave reviews for starring in the complex role of Fagin in Oliver. He has also starred in productions of The Boyfriend, Harry Nilsson’s The Point, and appeared as Jesus in Godspell, which played in London’s West End. Perhaps the most celebrated television appearance in Jones’s long career as a heartthrob is in The Brady Bunch episode, “Getting Davy Jones.” Jones is also an accomplished writer and humorous storyteller. He recently completed the second edition of his autobiography, Davy Jones: Daydream Believin’, which updates his life and career to the present.
