TV-Music Icon Dick Clark Dead at 82

I watched American Bandstand hosted by Dick Clark when I was (cough, cough) a teen many years ago.  He was a pioneer bringing rock and roll music into our homes.  When I do my math Dick Clark was only 12 years older than me which would mean he was in his late 20’s or early 30’s when he introduced AB.  He made New Year’s Eve a party for not only those in N.Y. but to everyone.   He will truly be missed!!!…flagranny2

 

Clark suffered a massive heart attack after entering  St. John’s Hospital  in Santa Monica Tuesday night for an outpatient procedure, according to his  family.
