(December 2008) Dave Clark Five Origin England Genre(s) Pop rock, beat Years active 1957–1970 Label(s) Epic, Columbia Former members Dave Clark Mike Smith Lenny Davidson Rick Huxley Denis Payton The Dave Clark Five (also known as "The DC5") were an English pop rock group. It was the second group of the British Invasion, after The Beatles, to have a chart hit in the United States ("Glad All Over" #6, February 1964). The Dave Clark Five had several more hit songs (see Discography below) in the United States during 1964-67, including "Bits and Pieces" (#4, April 1964), "Can’t You See That She’s Mine" (#4, June 1964), "Because" (#3, August 1964), "Anyway You Want It" (#14, November 1964), "I Like It Like That" (#7, June 1965), "Catch Us If You Can" (#4, August 1965), "Over And Over" (#1, December 25, 1965), and "You Got What It Takes" (#7, April 1967). The group disbanded in late 1970. On 10 March 2008 the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

He played with his drums at the front of the stage, relegating the guitarists and keyboard to his rear and sides. He formed the band around 1957, originally as a partnership, but from 1963 to 1968 he employed the other members, paying their wages and also paying for the recordings. He owned the copyright in the recordings for this period. Lead vocals were provided by Mike Smith, who also played the keyboards. The rest of the band was Lenny Davidson on lead guitar, Rick Huxley on bass guitar, and Denny Payton on saxophone, harmonica and guitar. Songwriting credits went to Clark, Clark and Smith, Clark and Davidson, and Clark and Payton. Some early songs were credited to Clark and Ron Ryan, who was the brother of early group member Mick Ryan. Originating in North London, the band was promoted as the vanguard of the 'Tottenham Sound', a response to the Mersey Beat stable managed by Brian Epstein. From the outset, the band's sound was complemented by the inclusion of a saxophone. They had a series of memorable hits, including "Glad All Over" that in January 1964 knocked the Beatles from the number one position on the UK Singles Chart. The Dave Clark Five had 17 records in Billboard's Top 40, with 12 Top 40 United Kingdom hits between 1964 and 1967. Their song "Over And Over" went to number one in the U.S. on the Billboard Charts Hot 100 at the end of December 1965, despite less than impressive sales in the UK, and they played to sell-out crowds on their tours of the U.S. Heavily promoted as having a "cleaner" image than the Beatles, the Dave Clark Five made 18 appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, more than any other UK group. In spite of their huge success for a period, bolstered by the movie and a television special, the major hits dried up after 1967's "You Got What It Takes". The DC5's efforts to embrace the prevailing trend of psychedelia were not successful. They disbanded in 1970, having placed a further three singles on the UK chart that year.  Post break-up Dave Clark was also the manager and executive producer of the band. Following the group's break-up, Clark set up a media company. In the process, he acquired the rights to the iconic 1960s pop series Ready, Steady, Go!. Clark has turned down all offers to reunite the group. His reasoning is that "We can't better what we've already done. I'm sure we can pack in certain venues if we reunited, but we've done that already. I'll leave it to all the new, exciting bands that are around." Mike Smith returned to performing in 2003 after a lay-off of 25 years. He formed Mike Smith's Rock Engine and did two mini-tours of the U.S., and he was legally forbidden from mentioning the DC5 in his advertising. A few months after his only son died in a diving accident, Smith suffered a spinal cord injury in a fall at his home in Spain on 12 September 2003. Until December 2007 he was an inpatient at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, according to published reports in the United Kingdom. He died on 28 February 2008 at Stoke Mandeville Hospital of pneumonia, at age 64, just less than two weeks before being inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame as a member of The Dave Clark Five. Denis Payton died on 17 December 2006 after a long battle with cancer. He was 63.  Controversy In the voting leading up to the 2007 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions, the band, which according to sources received the fifth most votes and thus was eligible for induction, was allegedly denied election by Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner in order to allow the induction of Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five as the first Hip Hop group in the hall.
The band was inducted into the hall in 2008. There is live footage of the band. On one of the Ready Steady Go! videos, the band performs "Bits and Pieces," supposedly from an Ed Sullivan show performance. There is also a Pathé News newsreel (similar to those of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones) showing the band in a club playing "Glad All Over" and "Bits and Pieces." Although the group played live at the 1964 New Musical Express Poll Winners' Concert, the footage has not circulated, despite the performances of all the other acts' at that show being readily available.  Induction into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame The Dave Clark Five made the list of nominees for the class of 2008, and on 13 December 2007 it was announced that the band would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on 10 March 2008. The group was inducted by Tom Hanks, who wrote, directed, and starred in the film That Thing You Do!, which was about an American one-hit wonder band that became popular in the wake of the British Invasion. The theme from "That Thing You Do!" was played as Hanks walked out on stage. In attendance with the three surviving members of the DC5 were the families of Lenny Davidson and Rick Huxley, and Denis Payton's two sons; Mike Smith died on 28 February, living long enough to know the band had made it, but dying eleven days before the induction. Dave Clark opened up his acceptance speech by saying that he felt like he was at the Oscars. Davidson gave mention that they arrived in New York for the ceremony on 8 March, exactly 44 years after their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. Joan Jett honoured the Dave Clark Five by performing "Bits and Pieces" with John Mellencamp's band. To perform "Glad All Over", Jett was joined by John Fogerty, John Mellencamp, Billy Joel and other artists that performed throughout the evening. In March 2008 a 28-track collection, The Dave Clark Five: The Hits, was released on iTunes.  Band personnel details The members of the Dave Clark Five, with birthdate and instruments, were the following:  Dave Clark (15 December 1939, Tottenham, North London, England), was the drummer.

In addition, since Dave Clark employed the other band members, some contend that he received songwriting credits solely by virtue of his status as employer, rather than by virtue of having made an actual contribution to a particular song. Ron Ryan details his involvement with the songwriting arrangements, asserting that he had a handshake agreement with Dave Clark that, while Dave Clark would receive songwriting credit for Ron Ryan's contributions, Ron Ryan was to share in songwriting royalties. There has never been any judicial confirmation of Ron Ryan's assertions. Instead, Ryan asserts that his claim against Clark was settled out of court. ^ Denny Payton had replaced former member and saxophone player Jim Spencer, who had come to the band through Rick Huxley. Spencer left the band in 1962, choosing to be close to his young family over the prospect of extensive touring.
