The Dave Clark Five are Down to Four

This feels very much like Len Bias timing, with Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame playing the role of Boston Celtics:

According to a source at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, singer and keyboardist Mike Smith tragically passed away this morning. He was 64 years old. Smith (far left) was to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 10th as a member of the Dave Clark Five. One of the biggest acts to break out as a part of the British invasion in the 1960s.
Mike Smith’s (on left, in picture) many fans included Tom Hanks, who will induct the Dave Clark Five into the Hall in ten days. There's no crying in baseball, but I suspect there might be at Hall of Fame inductions...

No. The DC5 are down to 3... saxophonist Denis Payton died in late 2006.

Most sad. Mike will be missed.
