Musician. A native of London, England, he was best known as the lead singer and keyboardist for the 1960s British rock band "The Dave Clark Five". Formed in Tottenham, England, the group had top ten hits with "Glad All Over", "Bits And Pieces", "Because", "Can't You See That She's Mine", "I Like It Like That", and was the subject of movie director John Boorman's documentary "Catch Us If You Can" (1965). They disbanded in 1970 and Smith pursued a solo career, which ended in 2003 after he was paralyzed in an accidental fall. He died of pneumonia less than two weeks before "The Dave Clark Five" was to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. (bio by: C.S.)
