Rick Huxley, the bassist for the 1960s British Invasion pop-rock group the Dave Clark Five, has died, the band's leader said on Tuesday.
The band scored No. 1 hits on both sides of the Atlantic during its decade-long run from 1960-1970.
Clark remembered Huxley for his modest demeanor and humor.
"He always made me smile and I'll miss that immensely," Clark said. "He was never arrogant and flashy. He was a gentleman and very low key. He was a very, very talented musician and a great friend."
The Dave Clark Five was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008.
Huxley is survived by two sons and a daughter.
