The last few years watching him after the stroke slurring his speech was tough to watch.

He should have retired and not let anyone see him like that. The lasting memory would have been a 70 year old guy who looked younger than the 50 year old Bandstand dancers at the reunion.

RIP. Prayers to his family.

Several years ago, he was testifying at some trial. Before he was dismissed, the judge said he had a question to ask him. The judge reminded him that he was still under oath. The judge’s question was from his wife. He asked how old he really was. Dick Clark answered seventy-something, however old he was at the time. Everyone in the courtroom got a good laugh out of that.

RIP, Mr. Clark. You helped take the edge off of our times. You will be missed.

I owned 24.5% of his American Bandstand nite club in Reno back in the mid/late-90's, along with Paul Revere (yes, of the Raiders band)owning another 24.5%. The club had the original American Bandstand neon sign from his TV show, along with much of his memorabilia gathered through the years, including a Mick Jagger costume, a surfboard signed by the Beach Boys and much more. It was a treat just to walk in the place...much like a Hard Rock or Planet Hollywood.

We all attended the grand opening and it was great fun. I have photos of it, but don't have a graphics server to post. Used to go up there at least quarterly every year till we closed. Haven't spoken with him since.

We'll miss you Dick. You helped provide the soundtrack to our lives! You were the real deal and the first to integrate the races on your show. You saw no color as the teens danced and gathered around you. Bless your family and the countless friends you've left behind.

Entertain them where ever you are Dick.

Really? You just had to post a photo of that fool on this thread? Bad form.
