America’s Oldest Teenager, Dick Clark, passed away from a heart attack at the age of 82 today. The legendary host/producer/entertainment industry icon will forever be remembered for his youthful nature, his innovative views, and the way he changed the way that Americans listened to pop music – from his work on American Bandstand (The Jackson 5, anyone?) to the annual New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Broadcast.
May the Bandstand in heaven be as rockin’ ‘n’ rollin’ as it was here on Earth! We salute you, Dick.
