My wife and I saw one of their final concerts last year here in the Twin Cities. They actually sounded pretty good. But what's kind of weird is that we remarked on the way home that night that both Davy Jones and Micky Dolenz looked completely stressed out. "High strung" was the phrase my wife used.
I had heard that the remainder of their tour was canceled about a month after we saw them. No official reason was ever mentioned. I think the rumor at the time was that Micky might have been overindulging in drink, but now, with Davy Jones death, it makes me wonder if health problems might have been to blame. Or perhaps they were just stressed and burned out on the whole touring live thing.
In any case, it's unfortunate.
