Dave Clark Five co-founder dies at 72
Rick Huxley, the bass player and co-founding member of the Sixties pop group the Dave Clark Five, has died, the BBC reports. He was 72.
Huxley, a heavy smoker, had battled emphysema for years, though bandleader Dave Clark said the bassist had recently been given a clean bill of health. Clark called Huxley’s death “devastating.” “We’d talk once a week,” Clark said. “I spoke to Rick on Friday, he was in great spirits.”
