Dick Clark death
Dick Clark died on April 18 of a heart attack at 82. "American's oldest teenager" introduced America to rock-and-roll by hosting "American Bandstand" from 1957-1987. In 1972, "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" debuted and continued every year (with only a few exceptions) with Ryan Seacrest eventually taking over hosting duties.
