Who is Lewis, and why was the band named after him if Dave Clark was the drummer?
Have you edited that piece down?
Let's try this again:
While the group -- which broke up in 1970 -- was named after him, Dave Clark himself was the drummer.
The "him" IS Dave Clark. Mark was the singer of the band named after the drummer.
So, no, I haven't edited anything down. I did dig this up from WIKI for you:
Although the group was named after him, Dave Clark was the drummer; lead vocals were provided by Mike Smith who also played the keyboards. The rest of the band was Lenny Davidson on lead guitar, Rick Huxley on bass guitar, and Denny Payton on saxophone, harmonica and guitar. Songwriting credits went to Clark, Clark and Smith, Clark and Davidson, and Clark and Payton. Some early songs were also credited to Clark and Ron Ryan, who was the brother of early group member Mick Ryan.
15 MONTHS AGO:
Musician Denis Payton, a founder member of rock group the Dave Clark Five, has died of cancer at the age of 63. Payton, who played saxophone, harmonica and guitar for the popular 1960s band, had been ill for some time.
