Farewell Dick Clark 1929-2012

American Bandstand host Dick Clark has passed away at the age of 82 due to heart attack. He suffered a stroke back in 2004. Dick Clark was the host of the American Bandstand where most rock groups played from the 1950’s to 2000’s, including KISS, whom he got them their first mainstream exposure. He used to be the game show host of the $10,000 Pyramid, which I grew up watching as a kid. For years, he has been hosting New Year’s Eve Specials. Unfortunately, it will not happen this year. Dick Clark championed real rock & roll and opened many Bandstand Grills throughout America, including Miami at the Bayside Marketplace. He will be missed by his friends, family, and the rock & roll community worldwide.
