The Dave Clark Five

5/30/2003 (14 years ago today)His real name was Michael Peter Hayes: Record producer Mickie Most {coolio name!} passed away on this date at age 64 — Best known for his work in the 1960’s for some of the British Invasion’s most essential and influential albums and singles, and a long, impressive list it is, too: The Animals, The Yardbirds, Herman’s Hermits, Donovan, Lulu, and early solo releases from Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page — His most successful run was with the Hermits; their first Most production, “I’m Into Something Good” (1964), breezily went to No. 1, and in just 12 months (with Mickie’s down-to-earth demeanor and an instinctual knack for picking hits) they sold over ten million in 45’s and LP’s, incredible stats when you consider the competition at the time…

5/30/1944Only two of the DC5 are still with us…: Happy Birthday to a rather underrated guitarist, original Dave Clark Five member Lenny Davidson, 73 years old today — Lenny was one of three members of the group who wrote songs, including the hits “Everybody Knows (I Still Love You)”, “I’ve Got To Have A Reason” and most notably the almost-chart-topping-super-infectious-snappy-classic “Catch Us If You Can” — Still teaches guitar back in his native England; Dave Clark is retired now at age 74, but sadly the other three members of this beloved Brit-Invasion outfit have all passed on: Saxman Denis Payton in December 2006, lead singer Mike Smith in February of 2008, and bassist Rick Huxley in February 2013 — One of the hardest (and legend has it, loudest!) rockin’ live bands of their time, should be given more credit for their catalog, really
