Dick Clark RIP - April 18, 2012, 03:22 PM

Dick Clark dead at 82 - Celebrity Circuit - CBS News



(CBS/AP) Host and TV producer Dick Clark has died. He was 82.


TMZ first reported the news Wednesday afternoon. A rep told the site that Clark underwent surgery Tuesday night and suffered a "massive" heart attack following the procedure.
Clark started his career as a radio announcer at WRUN in Utica, N.Y., when he was 17.

His long-running show, "American Bandstand," was on the air from 1957-1989. "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" began in 1972 and continues to this day with Ryan Seacrest.
Clark launched the American Music Awards in 1973. He became a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee in 1993.
Clark suffered a stroke in December 2004. He continued performing even after the stroke, even though it had affected his ability to speak and walk.

They needed to stop putting him on display at the end of New Years and letting him give the opening and closing address. It was painful to watch him trying to make a speech through a paralyzed mouth and vocal chords.

RIP though.

I applaud him for playing the original recordings black artists music on the radio in a time when most all DJ's played a white cover band's performance of the same song, and then doing the same with Bandstand and making it clear to the networks that AMB would be an integrated show.

That was bold step for its time, that quite literally almost got him killed.

I never said he wasn't a cut throat businessman.
You don't last 40+ years in media without acumen and a willingness to snatch someone else's cookies whenever you can.

Look at American Idol. Now you can't get away from it and its Johnny Come Latelys, Voice, and X-Factor.

A massive stroke and paralysis will do that.
