For Dave Clark Five, the accolades finally arrive -

For Dave Clark Five, the accolades finally arrive - "A month after The Beatles kicked off their historic three-episode blitz on The Ed Sullivan Show, a second British Invasion act stepped into that coveted spotlight. The Rolling Stones? The Who? Try the Dave Clark Five, the upbeat, drum-centric rock quintet that briefly rivaled The Beatles during the mid-'60s.
Wider gaps separate other achievements. The Beatles were ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988, the first year they qualified (25 years after their first recording). The DC5 was kept waiting another two decades. The band, which stalled in the 2006 and 2007 semifinals, finally will be inducted Monday by longtime admirer Tom Hanks at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York."
