The Monkees were fun, but let's be honest: Whitney Houston was a thousand times more famous than Davy Jones. No reason to be upset over that one.

I'll give you that Bradbury was very influential though.

The Bee Gees question is a bit easy. You only have to know the tiniest amount about the group to know that they were brothers with the surname Gibb. You don't even have to know which one died; you just type in "Gibb" and you get it.
