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.

The remainder of the obituary can be read here.

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