Dave grew up in North London, and at the age of 15 left school without obtaining a diploma. He found his place in the entertainment industry as a film stuntman, and appeared in more than 40 films. At the time he also bought a drum set and started a skiffle band through which he planned to support his football team that needed to travel to the Netherlands.

Soon enough the skiffle band grew into The Dave Clark Five, consisting of Mike Smith, Lenny Davidson, Rick Huxley and Denis Payton. They released a couple of singles in the UK, before releasing their debut album for the American market “Glad All Over”, which reached No. 3 on the US Billboard 200 and the single of the same name topped the charts, becoming the first song by a UK artist besides the Beatles to reach No. 1 on the US charts. The same year, the group released two more albums, “The Dave Clark Five Return!” (1964) for the USA market, and “A Session with The Dave Clark Five” (1964), which was for the UK market.

They continued to dominate the music scene on both continents, and with albums such as “Catch Us If You Can” (1965), “Coast to Coast” (1965), “Satisfied with You” (1966), “You Got What It Takes”, and “If Somebody Loves You” (1969), only cemented their place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Dave disbanded the group in 1970, and two years later stopped performing due to a tobogganing accident which left him with four broken knuckles.

Since then he ventured into different areas of entertainment industry, including filmmaking; he created two documentaries, “Hold On: It’s the Dave Clark Five” (1968), and “Glad All Over: The Dave Clark Five and Beyond”, which also improved his wealth.

Regarding his personal life, Dave has never married and has no children. It is also known that he was quite close to now deceased singer Freddie Mercury, and that Dave was at a bedside vigil when Mercury died in 1991. In addition to his bachelor life this brought numerous speculations about his sexuality, however, on a question if he was gay, Dave’s answer is always negative.

2[on Peter Davison] One of the nicest, most unassuming guys I know, and in this crazy world of show business those qualities are very rare.
3[on touring with The Dave Clark Five in the 1960s] That was the ultimate high, playing live. You feel like the Pied Piper, or a conductor, knowing how to take an audience up or bring them down. You were the champions of the world for that one or two hours of the day.

3Clark, as sole owner to the exclusive rights of all the songs of The Dave Clark Five, declined to license any of the band's recordings, and consequently none of their music was available to be purchased in any commercial format from 1978-93 until, in 1993, a single CD, "Glad All Over Again", was produced by Clark himself and released by EMI in Britain. Thereafter, nothing was legally available once again until 2008, when the "Hits" compilation was released by Universal Music in the UK.
4Clark was a close friend of Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury, whom he had known since 1975, and took over the bedside vigil of Mercury when he died in November 1991.
5The Dave Clark Five--Clark, Mike Smith, Lenny Davidson, Rick Huxley and Denis West Payton--made some 18 appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show (1948).
6Writer Bob Rafelson pitched the idea of a weekly sitcom to him; when Clark rejected the idea, Rafelson refined it to become The Monkees (1966).
