A sad day indeed for those of us who grew up with American Bandstand.

Dick Clark (Richard Wagstaff "Dick" Clark) is dead at 83. In 2004, he suffered a massive stroke, but continued to lend his presence at so many special events like New Year's Eves in Times Square. Very sad. It appears that Mr. Clark had passed from a heart attack.

He was a real pioneer, and contributed to the careers of so many great artists... without bias or prejudice. Just a great guy with a unique skill set and a great businessman as well.

America's oldest teenager is gone....

"For now, Dick Clark...so long."
