Dick Clark Dies

For years there were jokes that he was ageless, but ABC announces that longtime TV host Dick Clark has died at the age of 82
:(
He hosted "American Bandstand" for decades, created the "$25,000 Pyramid" gameshow, the "American Music Awards", and produced many other shows.

Interesting how Dick Clark dies and everyone goes nuts, but Levon Helm is on his deathbed and people don't seem to notice.

Being from Michigan I never found Grand Rapids all that bad. Had no idea Dick Clark was even alive.

I'm sure not nearly as many people know Levon(Bring up "The Band" and I'm sure you'll pick up a few more) as they did Dick Clark. Anyway I agree, that's a boat load of talent slipping away there. :(
