  • Valarie Newsham from CanadaDave Clark did not write one word or one note of any songs...Glad All Over was written entirely by Mike Smith.... Because was written entirely by Ron Ryan. DC is no more than a businessman.
  • Eileen from California To answer Barry from Saquoit Ny
    If Micheal performed standing, he was REALLY singing. Most bands who performed on shows like Ed Sullivan lipsincyed. I can attest to his voice when l met him and he sang a few lines of Because. Pure Magic!
  • Jack from New York, N.y.The truth is that Dave Clark never wrote a song in his life. He had his band mates on flat salary and the contract stated that any song that was recorded had to have his name on it, for which he received 75% of the profits. So in the case of Glad All Over, where it says written by Clark/Smith, it was actually written by Mike Smith. In the case of songs like Because, Any Way You Want It, Can I Trust You..., where the song is credited to Clark alone, the song was actually written by Ron Ryan. Clark then screwed Ron out of all royalties. Clark never wrote a song, can't read or write music, and didn't play drums on their records until 1966, even though he's listed as leader and drummer of the band. The drumming was done by Bobby Graham, a well known English session drummer who admitted to it in his book The Session Man. I'm saying this because Clark is now a multi-millionaire because of the work of the young men he employed and it's time to set the record straight.
  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaJoseph have seen one on youtube, can't remember the name of the song right now though. It may be Glad All Over.
  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaAlways loved the drums on their tunes, and that reverby sound. it was like nothing i have ever really heard since(except once in a while-the Beatlles Things We Said Today had it) so sad that i think only one of them is left alive. Mike could just rock a tune. would have loved to have heard him do Do You Love Me backed by the Funk Brothers who did the songs background originally, just for the fun of it).
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn November 1st 1964, the Dave Clark Five performed "Any Way You Want It" on the CBS-TV program 'The Ed Sullivan Show'... One week earlier on November 25th those bad boys, the Rolling Stones, made their first appearance on the 'Sullivan' show; Mr. Sullivan was so relieved by the DC Five's clean-cut image that he declared to his audience that they were 'nice, neat boys'...
    Mr. Sullivan also had vowed that the Stones would never appear again on his show after their Nov. 25th debut; but on November 23rd, 1969 the Stones made their sixth and final appearance on the 'Sullivan' show.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyAs already stated the Dave Clark Five appeared on the 'Sullivan' show on March 8th, 1964 and performed "Glad All Over"...
    And a year later on June 20th 1965 they performed it again on the 'Sullivan' program...
    On this same 'Sullivan' show they also sang "I Like It Like That"; and at the time it was at position #58 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart...
    R.I.P. lead vocalist & keyboard player Mike Smith (1943 - 2008).
  • Joseph from New York City, NyHello, to all that are interested in my question....I want to know why I can NOT ever seem to find any at all film footage of the DAVE CLARK FIVE playing a live show that has sound of that very performance - -It seems as though all the film footage of the DAVE CLARK FIVE show them lip-sync-ing to their songs - - Are there any recorded onstage performances that show the DAVE CLARK FIVE actually playing LIVE ONSTAGE - - Joe Nania A.K.A. Hollywood Joe
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn January 20th 1965, the Dave Clark Five performed "Glad All Over" on the ABC-TV program 'Shindig!'...
    Eleven months earlier on February 7th, 1964 it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on April 19th it peaked at #6 (for 1 week)and spent 14 weeks on the Top 100...
    And on January 18th, 1964 it reached #1 (for 2 weeks) on the U.K. NME Singles chart (it was the record that knocked the Beatles' "I Want To Hold Your Hand" out of #1 after 6 weeks)...
    Between 1964 and 1968 the group had twenty-four Top 100 records; with eight of them making the Top 10 and one reaching #1 ("Over and Over" for one week in 1965)...
    R.I.P. Jimmy O'Neil (Shindig's host, 1940 - 2013).
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyEchoing JoAnn of Levittown; Mike Smith passed away on Feb. 28th, 2008 at age 64 and Denis Payton died on Dec 12th, 2006 at age 63... R.I.P.
  • Joann from Levittown, NyYes, John from Mentor,OH Tom Hanks gave a wonderful speech. The only sad "part" is that
    Mike Smith & Denis Payton weren't there to accept their awards.
    They were there in "spirit".
    Dave Clark Five were great & still are.
  • Niles from Belpre, OhI'm 62 and I agree with you 110% Alan
  • Alan from Sault Ste. Marie, OnI'm 61 so I vividly remember the "British Invasion". I liked a lot of the bands and take nothing away from them. Having said that keep in mind with the exception of the Beatles and Stones the DC5 were one of the few bands that wrote their own material. True they did covers as did the Beatles and Stones but for the mostpart they recorded what they wrote. Look at the Searchers, Hermans Hermits, Billy J. Kramer, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Peter and Gordon etc. They all either recorded songs written for them or did covers.
  • John from Mentor, OhJust watched the 2008 U.S. Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame presentations.
    Dave Clark gave a poignant acceptance speech.
    Tom Hanks gave a kick ass introduction speech to the DC5.
