It is not known if any of the other former Monkees — Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork and Michael Nesmith — will perform at the public memorial services.

The lead vocalist of the 1960s made-for-television pop band that scored hits such as "Daydream Believer" and "Pleasant Valley Sunday," died after suffering a heart attack in Florida last week. He was 66.
