Condolences to family, friends, and fans of DAVE CLARK FIVE lead singer MIKE SMITH, who died THURSDAY near LONDON of pneumonia at 64.
SMITH was the voice of the band's many hits during the British Invasion of the '60s; his death comes less than two weeks before the band's induction into the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME. He had been paralyzed below the ribs since a fall at his home in SPAIN in 2006 and his fatal illness was a complication from that paralysis.
