Farewell, Dick Clark

Filed under: The Drive Home |

Music Icon Dick ClarkMusic icon Dick Clark passed away yesterday from an apparent heart attack.

He was known as “America’s Oldest Teenager,” and for anyone younger than 90 years old, was a fixture on our television. We welcomed the new year in with Dick every year since 1972, and for 30 years, an entire generation saw him introduce the finest musical acts in the world on his program, American Bandstand.

“Dick Clark was a pioneer, he was a music star maker,” Diana Ross shared in a statement. “I will always appreciate what he did for me and for popular music.”
