Rest in Peace, Dick.

He had class by the mile — New Years will never be the same again.

Prayers or the family.

The Mayans were trying to warn us.

At the bottom of their calendar, in fine print, it said “2013 will come. Only you must ring it in without Dick Clark, which means it might as will not come. We will therefore not include it.”

Thanks for all the great entertainment, Mr. Clark!

I grew up watching him on American Bandstand. Good, clean, wholesome fun. He’ll be missed.

Nobody saw that one coming.

I had naively expected Dick Clark to live to at least 120, as he was already the world’s oldest teenager, and was just barely out of his adolescence.

I actually was surprised to learn he was 82 - I had always thought him to be younger than myself.

Jeez, now I feel old.

In 1959, Clark did a radio interview with Elvis in the Army when stationed in Germany.. I was surprised Clark was 82. I thought he was at least 90.

He apparently ran out of secret formula youth cream.

RIP

Huh?

He's been a recurring pick in death pools since his first post-stroke New Year's Eve appearance.

I thought he was older than 82, but I guess that was just the way the stroke deteriorated his health.

RIP. Thanks for the AB memories.

“Jeez, now I feel old.”

If you grew-up with American Bandstand, “we” are old!

As a kid, I and many of my generation raced home from school to watch American Bandstand out of Philadelphia, with its “regulars” and guests, the introduction of new songs, new dances, etc. THEN, there was the Saturday night Dick Clark Show out of the Little Theatre in New York. I was fortunate to get tickets to two of those shows. Great, harmless times.

Rest in peace, Dick Clark.

Grew up with his show in the 50's & 60"s. Sad day! RIP Mr. Clark!

I remember him playing, and us doing, the "Mexican Hat Dance" with my grandmother when I was little. And, oh yeah, we all had our favorite couples/dancer.

Whenever I read the obituary of someone like Clark, who had a rich, rewarding, and a decent life, and lived to a ripe old age, instead of extending condolences to the family, I often feel it would be better if we could somehow thank them for a life well lived..

Knew he was up there in years, but didn’t know how many. He had a good beat, was easy to dance to — I’ll give him an 83...

Anyone remember the PAYOLA scandle Dick Clark was involved in back in the late 1950s?

Some wag wanted to coin a new word...”CLARKOLA”. It didn’t go over.

I went on a date with my first girlfriend to the Dick Clark Show (My mother had to drive us! "Beechnut Spearmint: 'Wrapped in green, Made for a teen.'") and I still have an audio tape somewhere of a different DCS. Year later, I worked with a guy who said he would regularly go over to wherever they did the original American Bandstand and be part of the action there.
