Davy Jones' funeral will not be the stage for a reunion of his former Monkees bandmates, according to the group's Micky Dolenz, who said his understanding was that the family wanted to keep the service "low-key" and avoid a "media circus."
Dolenz told Billboard.com that if he, Peter Tork, or Mike Nesmith were to show up by themselves or together, "it would very quickly be degraded into something that I don't think his immediate family would want to deal with."
The three had, however, spoken with one another since Jones' death, he said, and were all "in shock."
Jones died of a heart attack last Wednesday. He was 66.
According to family sources, Jones' body will be cremated and a memorial service -- date to be determined -- will be held in his home state of Florida, TMZ said Tuesday. Public memorials are also being planned for New York and England.
