1963

1964

 

January 64

 
1st Jan 64 Appeared on first Top of the Pops UK TV show in person and lip-synched "Glad All Over".

The very first episode was show at 6:36pm on New Years Day in 1964. The pilot episode was titled, "The Teen & Twenty Record Club". Shot in an old church in Didsbury in Manchester no recordings were made.

The first Top Of The Pops had the following acts miming live in the studio: Dusty Springfield ('I Only Want To Be With You'); the Rolling Stones ('I Wanna Be Your Man'); the Dave Clark Five ('Glad All Over'); the Hollies ('Stay') and the Swinging Blue Jeans ('Hippy Hippy Shake'). On film, Cliff Richard and the Shadows performed 'Don't Talk To Him'; Freddie & the Dreamers ('You Were Made For Me'). The studio audience were shown dancing to The Beatles 'She Loves You' and Gene Pitney's '24 Hours From Tulsa'.

This would seem very unlikely that this is a photo from the first TOTPs but I'm not at all sure where else to fit it. This photo isn't from Ready Steady Go!, or Thank Your Lucky Stars. Looking at the set-up of the drums it is after their RSG! appearance on 8th Dec. This wouldn't fit in with the dates for 5 o'Clock Club. It could of course just be a photo shoot, but if this is from a TV appearance then the set-up of the drums fits with this date or the second episode of TOTPs, on 8th Jan..

 

The toms: the toms are mounted with the 13" slightly low and not symetrical as they have been for a couple of weeks.DC is sitting high. Only one cymbal stand.
4th Jan 64 Dave Clark appears on Juke Box Jury shown on TV on 11th Jan
5th Jan 64 Basildon Locarno  
8th Jan 64 Appeared on TOTP in person and lip-synched "Glad All Over".

The BBC uses these photos of the DC5 on this webpage about an exhibition exporing Stockton's musical history held at the Preston Park Museum. The DC5 did appear at the Globe Theatre in Stockton on Tees on 7th May 1964 but these photo don't appear to come from that date. If it were the case, why is DC's drum kit set up on such a small platform, and where is the rest of their gear? Alamy Images own these images and say they are from an appearance on Top of the Pops and dates them as 11th April 1964. The problem is that they were on their UK tour on that date and appearing at the Theatre Royal Norwich. Top of the Pops was a live show so that dates doesn't work.

DC still has his Ajax cymbal stand in these photos, and Lenny is still using his Strat,which dates them anytime in the six weeks before their first US tour. The DC 5 appeared on TOTPs 5 times before their first trip to the USA. These photos are most likley from one of those appearances.

   
   
11th Jan 64 Appeared on BBC Radio Saturday Club also appeared on the Arthur Haynes Show on ATV.

These photos are from the film insert shown on The Arthur Haynes Show - thanks to Jason Atkins for this info.

 

The toms: the 13" is as it has been for a couple of weeks, still slightly low and not symetrical with the 12". For the first time DC has an Ajax cymbal stand to his right. "Rogers" logo is still slanted.
12th Jan 64 Basildon Locarno  

This photo is taken with some of the ladies who worked at The Basildon Locarno so I am guessing that this might be on the occasion of their last appearance there. The boys had just had their first hit and were moving on.

The cymbal on the stage in that position would imply that DC is using his English Rogers Red Sparkle kit so in any case this photo could not be any earlier than December 1963.

The photo on the left has to have been taken before their first tour of the US (Ajax cymbal stand) with a very close live audience, they were famous now.The only possibility I can see is that this is the Basildon Locarno.

The Getty Images site has the above photo as The Basildon Locarno and similar railings can seen on the side balcony. Also note jackets, ties and shirts. Early Jan 64.

Notice the boy's face in the bottom corner of the photo above. From the angle of the shot it looks like he might be on the stage. Is this the same young man we see in the picture with the ladies above?

As confirmation here we see the spot lights above and the stage surounds as in other photos from The Basildon Locarno.

 

DC has two cymbals here so all these photos may have been taken on the same night.

18th Jan 64 Tottenham Royal  
19th Jan 64 Tottenham Royal  
22nd Jan 64 Appeared on TOTP in person and lip-synched "Glad All Over"

Again difficult to pin this down but if these photos are from a TV appearance and not just a photo shoot then these would be candidates for the band's third appearance on TOTPs.

The toms: the 13" appears to have been tilted slightly towards DC, otherwise unchanged. There is no bass drum anchor fitted.DC has two cymbal stands.
25th Jan 64 Tottenham Royal  

Two photos superimposed on each other for the full dramatic effect.

Again a photo I can't date but at The Tottenham Royal and DC's bass drum does not have the two non-Rogers chrome-headed bolts, and if we assume that the work to add lighting to the bass drum was done at the same time as the bass drum anchor was fitted, then this has to be before their appearance on The Palladium. Note the fluffy animal on DC's bass drum in this photo and the next. Also notice that DC's bass drum batter head (the one he hits) has a small "pirate" style Rogers logo. Clearly the tall and narrow logo with the underscore, unique to DC was prefered.
 
26th Jan 64 Tottenham Royal  
 

February 64

 
1st Feb 64 Tottenham Royal  
I don't know the date of this photo but it is clearly at The Tottenhan Royal and DC's bass drum hoop does not have a bass drum anchor so it has to be before their appearance on The London Palladium. Also DC's logo is horizontal.
2nd Feb 64 Tottenham Royal  

Again I can't date this photo but from The Royal and there is no Bass drum anchor.

The Rogers logo has been made to disappear for this advert. Note that Mike is sitting on a Premier/Olympic drum stool. I wonder where he got that?
 
8th Feb 64 Tottenham Royal  
9th Feb 64 Appeared on the UK TV show Sunday Night at the London Palladium

Performed "Zip a Dee Doo Dah" & "Big Noise From Winnetka".

The band were joined by Bruce Forsyth for "Big Noise From Winnetka".

This photo clearly shows the bass drum anchor that was added to DC's front bass drum hoop. This is the first time that this has been captured on camera. This is a very useful aid for dating the photographs.

I suspect that the work to install the flashing lights in DC's bass drum and floor tom happened in the first few weeks of 1964.

Rick Huxley said, "In answer to a question about how the light bulbs in Dave's drums didn't keep blowing, I can tell you that they weren't anything really sophisticated. They were ordinary general purpose "rough service" coloured light bulbs fitted in lamp holders and fastened onto some battens inside the drum. They had coiled filaments so they wouldn't disintegrate with the beating of the drums. Originally they were on a timer so they flashed on and off giving the appearance that they were flashing in time with the drum beat. Later on though, they were synchronised to the drumbeat. We also had a bag of sand inside the drum or sometimes blankets to get rid of the resonance. If you took some of the air space out of the bass drum instead of getting a ......." (incomplete) See One Million Pound Drum Kit Restoration: Bass Drum to see an example of the damage to the bass drum shell.

14th Feb 64 Filming of Warner-Pathe newsreel at the Tottenham Royal.
 
15th Feb 64 Tottenham Royal also appeared on Thank Your Lucky Stars ( Bits & Pieces - released this date)

These photos again appear in the 1964 Thank Your Lucky Star Yearbook. Clearly they couldn't be in two places at once so this appearance would have to be pre-recorded.

The staging and the positioning of the drums and stands in every detail does not change in all the following photos, but there are two different backgrounds, leading to the conclusion that they changed the background around them. So I would assume that they performed two songs.

These photos have clearly been shot before the modifications that were made to DC's bass drum. There is no bass drum anchor. These photos must have been taken before the band's appearance at The London Palladium on 9th Feb. The "Rogers" logo in the following photos is horizontal as it was just prior to their appearance at The Palladium.

And now the background change?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The extra cymbal stand that DC has been using on his right can be seen clearly in this photo as being an Ajax cymbal stand. Boosey & Hawkes who made his English Rogers Red Sparkle drum kit also made Ajax drums. Seems likley to me that he went to B&H for a second Rogers cymbal stand and they didn't have one available, so he came away with an Ajax one temporarily.
16th Feb 64 Tottenham Royal  
19th Feb 64 Top of the Pops - appeared in a pre-recorded film sequence and lip-synched "Bits & Pieces".
I can see the bass drum anchor in this film clip. That places this clip early Jan 64 onwards. The Rogers logo is once again horizontal. DC is seen with only one cymbal. The toms are looking more symetrical and DC really is now sitting quite high.
20th Feb 64 "Scene At 6.30" Granada TV  
21st Feb 64 Ready Steady Go! performed "Bits and Pieces"
Although this avert is from the back page of the October issue of Beat Instrumental the combination of the bass drum anchor and the Ajax cymbal stand places this photo around the time of their appearance on The Palladium but before their first US tour . This photo has the RSG! spiral staircase in the background which can only mean that it is from this episode of RSG!

7th March 64 Appeared on BBC Radio "Saturday Club"  
8th March 64 Ed Sullivan Show, lip-synched "Glad All Over"
This is a photo of their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. DC is playing an American Rogers set in red sparkle. There is a "hollow" Rogers logo on the bass drum.
 

There are two angled collet plates positioned symetrically and well back on the bass drum. This is actually a far better thought out arrangement than DC's English kit.

Below is a replica of apparently what Rogers USA supplied you with if you ordered a Dave Clark drum kit between 1964 and 1967. This set is owned by the American drum historian Harry J Cangany Jr. The arrangement of collet plates on the bass drum is quite different to the arrangement of collet plates on his Red Sparkle English Rogers drum kit.

The photo below gives us a glimpse of the swivo arm that was used to hold the the mounted toms.
This is an interesting photo. This looks like is was taken at rehearsals for their second appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. The "R" on the Rogers logo has been blacked-in. Probably the Rogers rep. thought it needed to be seen better. So this is after their first appearance but Denny is still using his strat.
10th-14thMarch 64 5 days holiday in Montego Bay  
14th March 64 DC5 officially become professional  
14th March 64 Appeared on Thank Your Lucky Stars  
15th March 64 Ed Sullivan Show, lip synched Bits and Pieces ,Do You Love Me and Glad All Over.

I would guess that this photo is from their second appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

 

The American Rogers set that DC is playing is the same in all its details as in their first appearance apart from the "Rogers" logo on the bass drum which is now solid.

 

Looks like Lenny got himself a Gibson whilst they were on this trip. He isn't seen without it for quite some time.

16th May 64 Played China Theatre in Stockholm

Only two photos I have seen of Mike helping out on the toms.

 

These toms look like red sparkle English Rogers and the kit behind would be DC's English Rogers. In a few days time they fly directly to their first tour of the USA. It would seem likely that DC would take these drums with him.

Unknown venue and unknown date. These photos could have been shot during either their first or second US tour. However with the line of poloce at the front of the stage I would just guess that these are from the first US tour.

Clearly English Rogers floor toms and drum kit.

DC is seen here with what apparently looks like the same set he used for their first appearances earlier on in the year. owever the cymbal stands are not the same. Wheras in February he had matching swan-leg swiv-o-matic cymbal stands he now has a Rogers flush based stand and a Camco stand (also available in the Rogers catalogue). This leads me to wonder whether DC actually owned this set. It seems more likely to me that the dealer or whoever supplied this set didn't have any swiv-o-matic stands avaialble and he supplied what he had, which was a couple of non-matching stands.

20th June 64 Appeared on "Thank Your Lucky Stars"  

This photo was taken by British photographer David Redfern who worked in London in the 1960s. David began photographing TV Shows like ‘Ready Steady Go’ and ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars’ which were shot duringthe day. Here he made many of his now classic shots of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Dusty Springfield, and of course this of The DC5.

It looks like there were at least two photographers here.


I'm guessing that these photos were from Thank Your Lucky Stars but in any case it was taken in the UK between their first and second US tours. Denny has his Gibson and DC now has two Rogers cymbal stands. However, his Trixon drum stool can still be seen in the tangle of stands. When they return from their second US tour the Trixon stool will be replaced by a Rogers one.

22nd Aug 64 Thank Your Lucky Stars

We will see below that whilst still engaged on their Summer season in Blackpool The DC5 flew down from Blackpool to Boreham Wood Studios for the day to do some filming. My guess is that in the same way for this appearance on Thank Your Lucky Stars the TV company supplied this kit through Boosey & Hawkes who made English Rogers. DC is seen with an English Rogers in grey ripple wrap. The drums have "Bread & Butter" lugs which dates then to earlier than 1965. He has a bass drum head with the oval logo which was introduced second half of 1964.

DC doesn't look too happy here. Could this be due to the cymbal tilter having been lost and so his cymbal is mounted at a strange angle, the small "DC" logo, the stool he is having to sit on (see next photo) or the hi-hat stand he is having to use? From this point on whenever we see DC with a drum kit which does not belong to him he always has with him his own Rogers hi-hat stand and his own drum stool, and occasionally his own front bass drum head.

This photo from the 1965 Thank Your Lucky Stars yearbook shows a very sililar type of stool.
24th Aug 64 Appeared on TV Show "Discs A Go-Go" in Bristol
Again whilst they were on their Summer season. This could be the same drum kit froma couple of days ago but now with an extra tom and a bigger DC logo.
 
 
 

September

 
2nd September 64 Flew from Blackpool to Boreham Wood Studios to film Get Yourself A College Girl" Returned same night

The DC5 where still engaged on their Summer season when they flew down to Boreham Wood for the day. There are a lot of photos taken during this filming but they all relate just to one day.

The drum kit that DC can be seen with here is not the English Rogers kit that he has been using for the last year, there are many differences. However there are three pieces of equipment here from DC's signature drum kit, his Trixon drum stool, his Rogers hi-hat stand and his front bass drum head, but that is all.

Probably sometime during this tour this photo was taken and a similar one from the same session was usedfor the cover of the Coast to Coast album.

White jackets and paisley shirts - photo studio.

DC's own set was possibly being transported to the next gig.

The drum kit is a little confusing. American Rogers in White Marine Pearl with bread & butter lugs. The stands are Premier/Olympic. It is possible that these are DC's old stands. Maybe he carried them with him as spares. You wouldn't normally expect to see these stands in the USA especially being used with a Rogers drum set.

2nd Decenber 64 Civic Assembly Center,Tulsa, OK  
In 1964 there was apparently a hockey team in St Louis called "The Braves", but I doubt they played at the Keil Opera House. So the reference to "Braves" here probably refers to the Central High School of Tulsa Oklahoma who it would seem refer to themselves as "Braves". I assume one of their teams played at the Civic Assembly Center. Anyone knows different please let me know.

January

9th January 65 Appeared on "Thank Your Lucky Stars"

As in the next four photos DC is seen with his Red Sparkle English Rogers drum kit so I assume that they are in the UK. And as those paisley shirts don't seem to have lasted long this appearance on Thank Your Lucky Stars would seem about right.

Three changes of shirt so looks like they might have done three songs.

DC is seen here with his Red Sparkle English Rogers.

1st May 65 Dave Clark appears on BBC TV Juke Box Jury
13th May 65 Appear on the 5 o'Clock Club on AR-ITV
14th May 65 Appeared on "Ready Steady Go!" performed "Come Home"

In April 1965 RSG! moved to Redifission's Studio 5 Wembley, enabling artists to perform live. The show was temporarily retitled Ready Steady Goes Live! Artists' own pre-recorded backing tracks were not allowed by the Musicians' Union so the whole of Studio 5 (normally divided into 5a and 5b) was used so that an orchestra could perform the backing live.

The DC5 do at least appear to be plugged-in in the is photo, so maybe they were live. This photo could be from this date or from the begining of July 1965.

However, by the end of the year the show was back in the Kingsway Studios and miming appears to have been the norm once more.

DC is seen here with a dark pearl English Rogers drum kit and tantilisingly two floor toms out front. Had DC left his red set in The Far East expecting to continue touring there the following month? Again we can see the bass drum head with the oval Rogers logo and the small "DC" logo.

The English Rogers bass drum logo and the bass drum anchor can be clearly seen in this shot.

July

  Recorded "Ready Steady Go!" performed "Catch Us If You can, televised 9th July

This is Rediffusion's Wembly Studios, when RSG! was intended to be live. As I have said it looks like they returned to the Kingsway studio by the end of 1965 (at least for the New Years Eve special). So that would seem to put this photo at this date, but why the white drum kit?

The Kinks in the same studio.

The DC5 were part way through their 3rd US tour, they had returned to England for the premier of "Catch Us If You Can". It is likely that DC left his Red Sparkle English Rogers in the USA.

This white set is not the one he began using after he gave the red set away (see later), the position of the mounts on the bass drum are different. This is the only photo I have seen of DC with this kit. This is an English Rogers drum kit in White Pearl with beavertail lugs. He has the front bass drum head with the oval logo and the small "Dave Clark" logo which we saw on 22nd Aug 64 and 14th May 65. The cymbal stands are Ajax with Rogers swiv-o-matic tilters on top(a novelty), and a Rogers hi-hat stand.

Can't be sure if this is exactly the right date but this is from an appearance on Shindig in 1965.
DC is seen here with this Gold Sparkle Rogers USA drum set first seen on The Ed Sullivan Show 20th June. Note the early double tom holder also known as a "top-hat" or "dog bone" on top of a 22" bass drum - only time seen DC with this size. Powertone chrome-over-brass snare drum.

8th November 65

 

Royal Command Performance before HM the Queen at London Palladium,performed Welcome to my world,, &, Catch Us If You can,, also appearing Dusty Springfield, Frank Ifield, Spike Milligan,Peter Cook & Dudley Moore,Jack Benny, Johnny Halliday.

DC is again seen with a White Pearl English Rogers drum kit. It isn't possible to tell whether this is the one he used in July on RSG! or if this is the one he will use for the next few years. Either way he appears to have brought his bass drum head with him from America.

The Rogers logo on the bass drum head is the small "pirate" logo (it can be seen more clearly on 11th Dec. 65). This was the most commonly used. The photos below show us that DC had a newly painted bass drum head at some point between late June and early November 1965. They are similar but the difference can be seen best in details of the "k".

There was a report in the local paper the day following this concert which said that they played to an audience of 2475, quite a come-down from the 12000 reported at their first appearance in Milwaukee the year before.

 

Again the unique features on the kit can be seen. The observant may also notice that the bass drum logo has changed. This version of the logo was available from the beginings of English Rogers in 1961.

Waistcoates which they seem to have taken to in 65.

21st December 65 Ed Sullivan Show, lip synched "Catch Us If You Can"

Another waistcoat (and same tie as above), so maybe this photo belongs here.

 

DC is seen here with what appears to be the same Red Sparkle Rogers USA that he used for their first appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show. He has only one cymbal and that again is on yet another type of cymbal stand.But why is he using this when as we have already seen he has been using the Gold Sparkle kit on US TV?

Note the snare drum - looks like a chromed shell. It is a shame that the photo isn't more clear. I would guess that this might be the chrome-over-brass Powertone that he used with the Gold Sparkle set.

Same single cymbal set-up here, and same cloths. This might be the date of their last appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show where DC is using the Red Sparkle American Rogers set.

 
23rd December 65 Appeared on Shindig performed " Zip A Dee Doo Dah" and Can't You See That She's Mine" old footage previously seen on 16/12/64 )
31st December 65 Appeared on "Ready Steady Go!" New Year's Eve Special

DC's Red Sparkle English Rogers drums were borrowed by other groups on the bill that night.

20th March 66 Dave Clark presents drum kit - Wimbledon Palais, along with Mike Smith.

Full story on 1M Drum Kit - Competition page.

The Melody Maker who co-hosted the competition said “On Sunday, March 20th 1966 at the Wimbledon Palais, the prize was presented to the winner of the 'Million Pound Drum Contest'. From an entry of 2,700, Carol Offord was selected to win Dave Clark's multi-hit-making Rogers drum kit. Carol nominated her friend John Tillett (rear right) to receive the prize. "

These drums are DC's trusty Red Sparkle English Rogers. As we have seen Dave Clark aquired this kit as the career of The DC5 was taking off. It was used for TV and live appearances in the UK, Scandanavia, Australia and the Far East, as well as for their first four American tours, The Ed Sullivan Show and at least one othere appearance on US TV. It was borrowed by The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Animals (twice), The Searchers, Manfred Mann, Freddie and the Dreamers and probably The Kinks. DC was quoted by The Melody Maker as saying that this was the drum kit that he used for the recording of their early hits such as "Bits and Pieces" and "Glad All Over".
