Dick Clark, America's Oldest Teenager Dies at age 82

Dick Clark, the music industry maverick, longtime TV host and powerhouse producer who changed the way America 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."
