I'm happy I won't have to see him stumbling through New Years Eve again.
Longtime host of "American Bandstand." Never aged a day.
Rumor has always had it that, behind the facade, he was a vile, major league asshole.
He was R6. I worked for the shithead for a time.
Always had a soft spot for him. Rest in peace, Dick.
Strange how he and Don Cornelius died the same year.
So who is now America's Oldest Living Teenager? Carson Daily? Ryan Seacrud?
BTW, although Clark tried desperately to market American Bandstand after the fact as an A-Class variety show on the same level as Ed Sullivan's, it was FAR from it. Bandstand was a cute little afternoon teenage dance show that played records and sometimes has singers appear to lip-sync records.
I'm curious to see how the network news represents it tonight. Guess they will go with the bullshit that Bandstand was a "breakthough" and a "classic."
Apparently the doctors killed him with their excess procedures - probably an angioplasty.
