Deep Cuts: 60's Rock

The Dave Clark Five Catch Us If You CanThe Dave Clark Five named after drummer Dave Clark, formed in England from 1957 to 1962. The DC5 incorporated the new genre of rock 'n roll with psychedelic and surf music into their own musical brand. The Dave Clark's Five monster debut album was enough to knock The Beatle's "I Want to Hold Your Hand" off the top of the UK singles charts in January 1964.

Forty Four years later, in March of 2008, The Dave Clark Five was officially inducted into The Rock 'n Roll Hall Of Fame. Singer and keyboard player Mike Smith, who'd been with the band since he was 18 years old, had died 11 days before the induction ceremony at the age of 64.
