Dave’s death was confirmed on Thursday October 15 via The Tremeloes Facebook page.

Back in 2012, during a Sensational 60s Experience tour, Dave spoke to Andy Howells of Entertainment South Wales and remembered the chart-making days of The Tremeloes.

Dave recalled, “When we got in the studio, we had a good time, and it came across on all the records. Really that’s what the band is now on stage. We like to have a laugh and get the audience involved!”
