    Well, the heartthrob line was a joke he had been using forever. As far as I knew, he had no major health problems - full of energy and I traveled with him a lot, although not so much in the last few years. It's sad and unfortunate.

    That may be and you'd know better than I would. since you worked with him. I was just assuming it from the nature of the joke because jokes on aging tend to be based on the commonly shared realities of those who know them because they are now old and subject to the problems being joked about.

    If you've never seen the Monkees movie Head, it's worth a viewing for the cameos alone. May even convert those that hated them.

    Jazz is All, I was shocked as well when I read he had been released from the hospital just before his death. Whether Jones had a history of heart problems or not, it seems the hospital should have exercised far more caution.

    Sad news. As a kid I used to really enjoy the TV show. They did some good songs.
