#Fact
1Profiled in the 1991 book "The Big Beat--Conversations with Rock's Great Drummers", edited by Max Weinberg.
2Before his pop fame, he was a keen amateur boxer until a broken nose changed his career course.
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).

1I'm not a religious person, I believe all gods are one. It doesn't matter whether you're Buddhist or you're Muslim or you're Jewish or you're Christian or whatever.
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.
