Monkees frontman Davy Jones has launched astonishing attack on dead rockers Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley and Janis Joplin, questioning why society worships people who wasted their lives. The 61-year-old I'M A BELIEVER singer insists they wouldn't have been idolised if they were still alive. Jones says, "I don't have a lot of respect for people like Jimi Hendrix, or Kurt Cobain, or Janis Joplin or Elvis Presley, because they all killed themselves in one way or another. "Although I often wonder what they'd be doing now if they were still alive. Would they be these crumbling lookalikes of the same people, greeting people at the entrance of Caesar's Palace?"

Ok.... first of all... this s**t head should put his fuc*kin foot in his mouth.... I have never heard of this guy, but he talks alot of sh*t for someone who isnt well known at all. Those people were great at what they did, they made people feel theie music and music was one thing that no one could take away from them. This guy is just saying all this cuz he wants some attention,kinda sad and pathetic eh? some of the best music of all time were by Hendrix and Joplin, Kurt was crazy good at what he did!.... They all died, yeh but it didnt have anything to do with theie great music, they had there own problems.... this guy thinks he doesnt? Wasted their Lives? Ummmm i thnk ur the only one who thinks that way buddy... read some bio's, buy some GOOD music, and stuff it dumb as* Pff.... Fu*k you.
