Not much else to say, other than rest in peace.
RIP Dick! It's sad to see him go although it was getting a little weird during the NYE celebration. I'm sure Ryan Secrest will fill his shoes nicely.
I actually met Dick Clark pre-stroke about 12 years ago at a restaurant in Malibu.
If anything, he taught the world how to stay young no matter how old you are. RIP, Dick.
Truly a pioneer in entertainment. RIP.
Wow. You kind of see it coming every NYE but wow.
you guys, he hasnt done NYE since 2006. seacrest has been doing it.
Except that he has been televised in one way or another. That's where I was going.
i said guys....not girls.
Dick Clark deserves a lot credit for being one of the first, if not the first, to bring black artists to a white audience on national TV.(Allan Freed, a NY radio DJ had a local show in NY featuring black artists and integrated audiences.)
Prior to American Bandstand, black artists were restricted to radio "race stations". Clark brought them to TV, with an integrated group of kids dancing. Of course, there were no mixed race couples dancing, but in the 50's and 60's, just having black and white kids together on TV was radical. And having black artists performing before a integrated audience was unheard of.
Artists like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Bo Diddley, and Frankie Lyman credited Dick Clark with bringing black artists into the main stream.
RIP Dick. Remember him more for his Pyramid game show and bloopers show
I guess it is how we define "sporadically"?
True, insofar as a White audience was concerned.
Band Stand was still on when I was a kid but not what it was in its heyday. My favorite DC shows were Bloopers, along with $100,000 Pyramid.
Wow, a RIP thread and you come up with this.
He was a showman, not a saint.
Helluva career. And appearing on the New Years Eve shows right up until the end -- what a trouper.
Hopefully they'll have a hologram Dick Clark do the countdown on New Year's Eve
The guy was worth billions. How many kids did he have?
He knew the world was ending this year and his services would not be needed for NYE. That's my guess anyway.
RIP. He seemed ageless, until the stroke. He influenced the soundtrack of my life.
I am a lady. Recognize!
That would be cool lol, as far as I'm concerned they should have done something fun like that earlier. Watching a poor elderly man who suffered from a stroke stutter on camera was getting a little depressing every year.
It kind of was, being reminded of his disability. But I also admired his willingness to go ahead and put himself out there. I'm sure he was an inspiration for other stroke victims.
