America‘s idol, Mr Music man, Dick Clark, died April 18, 2012 from a massive coronary while at at Saint John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, California. He was under going a medic procedure when he had a heart attack and died at the age of 82. The entertainment Industry will surely feel his loss, especially the music industry. For many. like myself, his passing has very special meaning. He filled a huge portion of my childhood and teen age years with his show American Bandstand, which aired from 1957 to 1989. I can’t think of  a great musical star from that era who didn’t get their start on Band Stand.

I’m not going to make this a list if his great personal achievements. Suffice it to say all I and most of Dick’s fans cared about was his personality, his charm, his ability to promote good, clean fun, for teens in the music world when there was so much out there that labeled Rock -N-Roll as unhealthy for kids and teenagers. Thank you Dick for all you did and shared over the years. I cannot imagine New Years Eve with out Dick Clark in New York watching the show and waiting for that darn ball to fall every year for s long as I can remember! RIP Dick you now move among the “stars!” We all love you and will miss you.
