Dick Clark, who is known for being one of the famous icons on both music and television, dies at the age of 82, but along with his death leaves a memory of a lifetime that contributed a lot in the industry.
Dick Clark was widely known as a radio and television personality in America and he is best known for hosting television’s longest-running variety show from 1957 to 1987 which is the American Bandstand. He also hosted the game show Pyramid and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, which beamed Times Square’s New Year’s Eve celebrations worldwide. That is why we really need to somehow thank him for this.
Clark stood as an avatar of rock ‘n’ roll virtually from its birth as a cultural touchstone for boomers and their grandkids alike until his death on Wednesday at the age of 82. This has made him become the “World’s oldest teenager” for years now as time and infirmity caught up with his enduring boyishness. It was really fun seeing and hearing him around but his health and old age really gave him the chance to finally rest for a long period of time. He is known for hosting New Year’s Eve in Times Square for over four decades and the people are sad because they can no longer see him this upcoming New Year’s Eve. He will still be remembered every year during the celebration and the people will be ever grateful for him because of this.
