I grew up watching American Bandstand. He was the voice and face of Rock and Roll when I was a child and a teenager.
It is a great loss. I have fond memories of him. His show was the highlight of the week when I was a young teen and pre-teen. I loved to watch his show. I remember seeing Tony Orlando, Donny Osmond, The Jackson Five, K.C. and the Sunshine Band, ABBA, and many more. If it was on Bandstand it was worth listening too.
He kept us all young, because he was "America's Oldest Teenager."
Dick Clark will be missed by millions of fans, and I am sad to see him go.
I wish his family strength in this difficult time. My prayers go out to them.
