Julien's comments: "Davy Jones, singer, actor and music icon, originally found fame as a member and teen heartthrob of the pop group 'The Monkees.'

"In 1964, Jones was a Broadway performer who starred as 'Oliver.' As the Broadway character, Davy appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show the same night The Beatles made their American debut and he had stars in his eyes from that day forward.

"He went on to star in the television show of the same name, The Monkees, alongside bandmates Peter Tork, Mickey Dolenz and Mike Nesmith."

The archive will cross the block on the first day of the Music Icons auction, which will also include a 1963 Mastersound electric guitar that once belonged to George Harrison. It's valued at $400,000-600,000.

A selection of items from the life and career of Elvis Presley will also be available.
