Dick Clark 1929 -2012

It just passed over the wire that Dick Clark of American Bandstand fame, died today. Another cultural icon of my youth is gone.

There is no way that I can imagine Rock & Roll, the true music of America and what it would be without the contribution of Dick Clark who was there at it's birth as well as it's continued growth.

May he rest in peace, for all the joy and pleasure that he brought to people over the years

I am in full agreement - - the passing of a true American icon.
