Understandably, I always wondered why Marcia Brady picked Davy Jones to obsess overeven Tork was cooler than he wasbut now that I'm older and wiser, I totally get it. Think about it tight bellbottoms? Check. Cute and authentic British accent? Si, señor. Lead vocal privileges on an absolutely perfect Neil Diamond tune ("Daydream Believer")? We have a winner. When you're dealt a hand of cards like that, you just can't lose.
Before he went into acting, though, Jones trained to be a horse jockey, something he went back to later in life (he won his first race in 1996 at the age of 50). It was his days as a pop icon, however, that allowed Jones to tap more teenage bootay than anyone in the storied history of jockeydom. This Saturday night at 8 p.m., the dreamy one takes the stage in Addison as part of Artfest, a four-day extravaganza of art, food and music in Addison.
