Out of respect to his family, bandmates Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork, and Mike Nesmith will forgo attending the funeral of Davy Jones. The Jones family has requested that the service be low key and as private as possible, so to avoid paparazzi and other unnecessary drama, the remaining Monkees will mourn separately.
Micky Dolenz says: “My understanding is they want to avoid a media circus and… the family wants to keep it very, very low-key and very, very private… you can imagine as soon as one or two or any of us were to show up, it would very quickly be degraded into something that I don’t think his immediate family would want to deal with. So I’m kind of expecting their wishes, whatever their wishes may be.”
