I think Dick Clark is a celebrity that everyone would agree with him being someone they could look up to. Rest in peace Dick Clark.

RIP, Mr. Clark.

To say he had an influence and laid the ground work for todays pop culture is an understatement. I can also say that many stars and shows for that matter would not be where they are without Dick Clark. They owe this man a huge debt, to say the least. I for one am grateful for the memories.

I miss those days when I would come home from school and tune in for the 10,000 Pyramid, Dick Clark was the best, anything he was on was the best, Rockin' New Years Eve, Bandstand, Game Shows, whatever he hosted was automatically better because he was there. In the 70"s, Dick Clark and Bob Barker were the only ones I could really say that for, because they were just so good at what they did, anything they were involved in was bound to do well. Dick Clark was one of the greats.

RIP, Dick Clark

Default RIP Dick Clark

Thanks for some wonderful musical entertainment show memories. You were one of a kind, a trail blazer.

RIP DC

I loved the fact that he still showed up for his new years eve count down, even with the effects of his stroke.

I saw a show about two twin sisters that were autistic savants. They were obsessed with Dick Clark. With being savants they both knew every aspect and detail of his life. Every day of there lives was dedicated to scrapbooks and viewing t.v. shows of Dick Clark. He knew about them and would get together with them every few years. When I heard of his passing my thoughts immediately went to these two sister. I feel so heartbroken for them, I can't imagine how this will effect their world.

Not me...he looked so sad. If I couldn't see the healthy, young-looking, vibrant Dick...I'd rather not see Dick at all.

Too bad they don't show re-runs of this program.

I agree.

At least now we don't have to see him this New Years Eve.

I too did not like bringing in the NY with an unhealty DC, it was depressing, it was time for him to get over it and get someone else.

New Year's Eve won't be the same without him anymore. I doubt there would be a new year's celebration due to the world ending on December 21st. Actually, the world would of ended a long time ago when the Mayans failed to include leap years on their calendar.
