abcnews.go.com...

Dick Clark, the music industry maverick, longtime TV host and powerhouse producer who changed the way we listened to pop music with "American Bandstand," and whose trademark "Rockin' Eve" became a fixture of New Year's celebrations, died today at the age of 82.

Clark's agent Paul Shefrin said in statement that the veteran host died this morning following a "massive heart attack."

Born in Mount Vernon, N.Y., on Nov. 30, 1929, Richard Wagstaff Clark began his lifelong career in show business began before he was even out of high school. He started working in the mailroom of WRUN, a radio station in upstate New York run by his father and uncle. It wasn't long before the teenager was on the air, filling in for the weatherman and the announcer.

RIP Dick Clark - I basically grew up with this man (so to speak). 82 pretty good years for this one.

OP, why the need to sensationalize the title with all caps? It's not part of the article title. It's also not uncommon for a man of his age and experiences to have a heart attack.

His sweet house went up for sale (and likely still is): Flinstone Style House

For me this files under the thread that was done some time ago about celebrities who were thought to be dead already. I wonder if anyone else thought Dick Clark had already died sometime ago.

I thought he died a while ago. Seems like they announced it before one of the New Years Eve's a while back when Seacrest began doing them.

He had a stroke and couldn't do the New year's eve thing and that's when Seacrest took over, but I think Dick came back for this last one. That's prolly why some peolple think he died already.

That was a stroke he had then. He made a brief appearance on this years New Year Rockin Eve, but Ryan Seacrest has been doing it for the past few years.

Yeah, I heard this on the radio about 20 minutes ago and asked a waitress(20) downstairs if she knew who he was. Nope. I hope I did due diligence with my kids(22, 18, 16). Hell I know who Glenn Miller is.

How many dances did Dick see? Watusi. Buggaloo, Twist..... I could go one but a video instead:

Ya, I think the people around him
knew he was not doing so hot.
I did not think he was near death quite
yet, I thought he'd make it to 85-90.

I did see him on this past new years eve
show and while he was no where near as bad
as he was in 06 when he had the stroke still seemed
a little off... I thought they could see any blocked arteries
and things of such and that you would know if it was likely
you would have a heart attack..

DICK saw nothing but music, no black white yellow
or in between. He did more for race relations
than AL and JACK put together.. He brought
coloreds and whites together at the dance
was such a HUUUUUGE thing... Wonderful man
cant say a bad thing about him.
Oh and the title is exactly as is except
the how he died part.. I got excited to report it
not that he died when i heard the news and went to post
quick, here nor there, not here to talk about that.

This brought tears to my eyes - I loved Dick Clark
and his love of music. I grew up with him as many
did - the good ole days. RIP Dick Clark.

R.I.P. Dick....I watched American Bandstand for years while growing up.

Now we're stuck with Seacrest permanently for New Years Eve countdowns.

To be honest I thought it was rather morbid they way they wheeled him out there the past few times for the new years celebrations. He could barely speak and it just appeared wrong. It seemed rather insensitive but undoubtedly his wishes.

Go ahead and continue to deny the 2012 prophecies at your own peril...

If this is not a sure sign I don't know what is?

On a serious note - I wish he'd have retired long ago when he still had some dignity. I hated seeing him all stroked out on New Year's Eve for the past 5 years. I'd rather go out in my prime so people would remember me that way.

A whole generation or more knows him more as a punch line rather than an icon.

Know when to fold-em Dick…

Or not American maybe? Not everything you do over there gets spread throughout the world. Hate to have to break it to you like that.

I'm curious where the conspiracy in an old man having a heart attack is though?
