LONDON (AP) - Bass player Rick Huxley, one of the founding members of the Dave Clark Five, has died. He was 72.

Clark announced Huxley's death Tuesday, saying the news was "devastating."

Huxley played on the band's signature hits from the era when they rivaled the Beatles in popularity.

Their best known songs included "Bits and Pieces" and "Glad All Over." They enjoyed a large following in the United States after appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show.

The band was known for drummer Clark's driving beat and his exuberant vocals, but they faded after several years and broke up in 1970 after 12 years together.

They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008.

Huxley, who suffered from emphysema, died Monday.
