Baby Boomer Thursdays: The Dave Clark 5

Baby boomer Thursdays are back after a brief hiatus. It seems only fitting that this week's installment should spotlight The Dave Clark 5.

Many may already know that Mike Smith, (second from left), keyboard player and vocalist for The DC-5 passed away last week at the age of 64. He was the face and the voice of such hits as, Do You Love Me, Bits and Pieces, Glad All Over, Because, and I like It Like That.

The band chalked up 18 top 40 hits between October of 1963 and May of 1967, and Dave Clark was in fact, the drummer.

This Week's Video Clip
The very nice ballad "Because", which reached #3 in the USA in September of 1964. This is a 2 minute 38 second performance from Shindig! The camera zooms in on the late Mike Smith, sometime after 1:30.
