Music And Life Of Dick Clark

Mr. Dick Clark has passed away at the age of 82. He suffered a heart attack after leaving a Los Angeles hospital. Doctors did try to revive him but were unsuccessful. He had type 2 diabetes and struggled with heart problems for several years, and in 2004 he suffered a stroke which kept him from hosting New Years Rockin Eve. This was the only television appearance he missed. New years 2005 was his first appearance back to television.

Deemed Americas oldest teenager. Dick Clark did as much if not more than Elvis did to spread the word and love for "rock and roll" He did this by hosting a show called American band stand for thirty years. While hosting American band stand Dick Clark put a stop to the industry using only white performers by introducing acts like Little Richard, Stevie Wonder, The Jackson five and in later years even Run DMC. Dick Clark was inducted into the Rock n Roll hall of fame in 1993

American band stand was a direct cause for new talent shows like star search. In the eighties. Which in turn sparked the shows we have today American Idol, Who's got talent, so you think you can dance and so on. Dick Clark productions also created many other television shows like the academy of country music awards, the daytime Emmy, and the golden globe awards. He was also game show host on shows like the twenty five thousand dollar pyramid. And of course his hilarious bloopers shows.

Americas oldest teenager has been an inspiration to me. His love for music especially Rock n Roll gave me understanding. It made me realize that all music and all musicians are influenced by not one just one genre of but probably all types of music. And Im sure he has done so much to motivate and inspire millions of others. Not only was he a musical trail blazer. But, he was a great self motivator and entrepreneur. We have lost an important idol in American pop culture and an outstanding human being. I can only hope that one day soon we will have some one come along that does as much for music and entertainment as he did. Until then we will all be sadly remembering the legacy he left behind. I hope all of you enjoyed reading this article. I also write a blog that is dedicated to music. Thank you, Pennyandy
