DD,D,B.M&T were formed in Salisbury in the early Sixties and were originally named Dave Dee & The Bostons. Dee was a former policeman who attended the scene of the car crash in 1960 which killed American rocker Eddie Cochran and injured Gene Vincent.

Yet another of the British groups which honed their skills in Hamburg, they also worked hard at building up a following at home by incessantly touring British dancehalls, often supporting acts which were already established.

After re-locating their operations to London in 1964, they were discovered by Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley, a songwriting duo, who became their managers and wrote a series of blatantly commercial top ten hits for them from the spring of '66 until the decade's end.

Dee was to leave the group in 1969, and later went into the other side of the "business" as a producer and an A&R man while the remainder of the group carried on briefly as D, B, M & T.
