    He really never fully recovered from that Stroke. Until that stroke, he always looked very young for his age and very energetic. After the stroke, he was a shell of his former self.

    RIP, he was a pioneer in broadcasting.

    I didn't realize he was that old. I thought he was still in his 60's.

    A legend in broadcasting. Few covered as much ground as Clark. RIP to the Worlds Oldest Teenager
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Here's an episode of American Bandstand after Dick Clark showed the two films for Strawberry Fields Forever & Penny Lane. Between the clips and after Penny Lane, he got the kids' reactions to the films & to their new look (the moustaches). Pretty funny. The Penny Lane clip ends around the 4 minute mark.

    My home town radio never played songs by black people. We all learned about James Brown, the Supremes, Chuck Berry ("They'll be rocking on Bandstand, Philadelphia, P-A.") Little Richard ect, through Bandstand.

    I can still remember the first time I ever heard of Otis Redding, when he came on Bandstand to sing "Sad Song-Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa". Wow, how long has this been going on?


    I'll give it a 95, Dick. I liked the beat.

    Man certainly had a good beat, and you could dance to it.

    He was a voice in music for generations and his influence will be missed.

    Also, can we get rid of Ryan Seacrest in tribute?

    Two great Dick Clark interviews:

    Starting around 3:51, Mr. Clark just powers through it.

    To quote Tony Orlando: "Only God is responsible for making more stars than Dick Clark".

    I was surprise to hear about Dick Clark's other business ventures.

    RIP Dick Clark.

    With American Bandstand, The Million Dollar Pyramid, Bloopers and Practical Jokes, and New Year's Eve, he was one of American's television icons.

    RIP.

    I actually remember watching that when it was originally broadcast. It was funny then listening to the negative reaction from the girls who still wanted to see four mop tops singing She Loves You ya ya ya. LOL

    Back then I always wondered why the Beatles never personally appeared on ABS. And I think it had a lot to do with Clark himself. In the group's early goings Clark pretty much panned them. In 1963, Swan Records, whom DC was a founding member, won the distribution rights to release She Loves You on 45 in the U.S. (my sister still has it). But it was done over the objections of Clark who called those executives insane and said the Beatles would never fly. He did play SLY on a segment of ABS called Rate-A-Record, and said it scored poorly. But some said it scored poorly because that's what Clark wanted it to do. When Beatlemania hit the next year he called their music "kid stuff" and that the Beatles were already "tapering off".

    I never could understand what Clark's "thing" was against the Beatles. Was it just ego, and not wanting to admit he may have missed the boat on this one? Was he concerned the British Invasion was going to be the death of the American East Coast music which was so popular then and made him a star? Just interesting stuff.

    I remember him doing all of those shows. He was a big part of my TV viewing in my younger days and I hardly know a New Years Eve that he wasn't a part. R.I.P. Dick Clark. Thanks for all of the entertainment.
