One of my favorite groups in the 60’s was the Dave Clark Five, who, for a brief time, rivaled the popularity of the Beatles.
I recall going over to my Uncle Claude and Aunt Rose’s house with my parents on Sunday evenings. There would be my cousins, Claire and Claudia, fighting over the mirror in the bathroom as they ratted their hair so it could touch the ceiling.
Then in the living room, the TV would come on…..Ed Sullivan, of course. Ed would introduce the Dave Clark Five and Claire and Claudia would scream at the television. Grampa Fischer would roll his eyes.
Today, Dave Clark (the drummer) turns 65. This week, the Dave Clark Five were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and rightfully so.
Now they have to correct an injustice and put Chicago in there.
