Sad news out of Hollywood. TV icon Dick Clark has died of a heart attack at age 82. Effective immediately, New Year’s Eve is canceled! Just kidding. The icon of the final day of the year was so nice and I was fortunate enough to meet him many times over the years and he was always gracious to fans. They don’t make them like that anymore, and it’s a pity. RIP Dick! And also, thanks for all the great bands I discovered because of American Bandstand.

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!
