John Stewart, who wrote the Monkees’ hit “Daydream Believer” and became a well-known figure in the 1960s folk music revival as a member of The Kingston Trio, has died, according to the band’s Web site. He was 68.
Stewart suffered a massive stroke or brain aneurysm and died early Saturday at a San Diego hospital, the band announced on its official Web site.
“The world has lost one of its best men, but a man who lived well and made many people happy with his love, his wit and his music,” the announcement said.

R.I.P. Mr. Stewart. This is just *too* young.
