Singer Mike Smith of The Dave Clark Five has died, less than two weeks before the band was to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The band's publicist says Smith died of pneumonia today outside London. Smith was 64.

The Dave Clark Five's hits include "Glad All Over," "Catch Us If You Can" and "Over and Over."

Smith's illness was a complication from a spinal cord injury he sustained in September 2003 that left him paralyzed below the ribs. Smith had been in the hospital since the accident and was just released this past December.

He had intended to attend The Dave Clark Five's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in New York on March 10th.
