BEVERLY HILLS, Fla., Feb. 29 (UPI) -- British singer-songwriter and musician Davy Jones died Wednesday after suffering a heart attack, his publicist said. He was 66.

TMZ confirmed his death with the coroner's office in Martin County, Fla.

Jones is best known for his work with the pop band The Monkees, known for their hits "Daydream Believer," "I'm a Believer" and "Last Train to Clarksville." The group's eponymous sitcom ran on NBC from 1966 to 1968.

Jones also memorably guest starred as himself on a classic episode of "The Brady Bunch" when Marcia, played by Maureen McCormick, persuades her celebrity crush to go to her high-school dance.

Jones is survived by his wife Jessica and four daughters.
