About The Dave Clark Five

The Dave Clark Five (also known as 'The DC5') were an English pop rock group. Their single 'Glad All Over' knocked the Beatles' 'I Want to Hold Your Hand' off the top of the UK singles charts in January 1964: it eventually peaked at number 6 in the United States in April 1964. They were the second group of the British Invasion on The Ed Sullivan Show, appearing in March for two weeks after the Beatles appeared three straight weeks in February 1964. For some time they were more popular in the US than in their native UK, but they had a renaissance in the UK between 1967 and 1970. The group disbanded in late 1970. On 10 March 2008, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The band started out as the Dave Clark Quintet in 1957, with Clark on drums, Dave Sanford on lead guitar, Chris Walls on bass, Don Vale on piano (and arranger) and A N Other on saxophone.
