(REUTERS) - 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. He was 72.

Huxley died unexpectedly at his home in the English countryside on Monday, Dave Clark told Reuters.

The band scored No. 1 hits on both sides of the Atlantic during its decade-long run from 1960-1970.

Glad All Over holds the honor of knocking the Beatles' I Want to Hold Your Hand out of the top spot on the United Kingdom chart in 1964, while Over and Over topped the United States (US) chart in 1965.
