Dave Clark Five cofounder - Rick Huxley died

Another Rock N Roll legend gone. Three of their hit songs are embedded in the article.

Only 2 members of the Dave Clark Five are still alive.

Glad All Over is my favorite song from the group.
Founded in 1958 after a previous incarnation, the Dave Clark Five were part of the British Invasion movement that brought the Beatles to America in the Sixties – in fact, the group appeared on "The Ed Sullivan Show" just two weeks after the Beatles in February 1964, and the Dave Clark Five's song "Glad All Over" knocked "I Want to Hold Your Hand" out of the top spot on the U.K. singles chart a month earlier. The song was one of several hit singles by the Dave Clark Five, along with "Bits and Pieces" and "Everybody Knows." The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008.

I just watched a 2012 video of Peter Noone singing Mrs. Brown. He's been singing that song for almost 50 years. Wow!

I'm sad all over. The DC5 was my first rock 'n' roll crush.

"Glad All Over," "Bits and Pieces," "Catch Us If You Can" ...

All great pop tunes!

Another icon from my junior high years gone.

I saw "Having a Wild Weekend" before I saw "It's A Hard day's Night"
