The world’s favorite New Year’s Eve personality, Dick Clark turns 82 today and we wish him a very happy birthday. I’ve met Dick Clark many times and he’s always extremely nice. Until some recent health problems, the man never looked like he aged at all. If it was plastic surgery, he should have let all of his celebrity friends know the name of his doctor, because people way younger than him look much worse! I loved when he hosted American Bandstand and I learned about so much great music because of that show! Thanks Dick and many happy returns!
