Mike Smith of Sixties group The Dave Clark Five has died aged 64. Smith, the band's lead singer and keyboardist, was admitted to the Stoke Mandeville Hospital's intensive care unit on Wednesday with a chest infection. He had been in hospital since September 2003 following a spinal cord injury that left him a tetraplegic and only recently moved in to a specially modified family home.
When I was a student the Dave Clark Five had hits with "Bits and Pieces" and "Feeling Glad all over". We always wondered who Glad was.
