Remembering Dick Clark

Executive producer Dick Clark poses at the nominations for the 30th Annual American Music Awards on Nov. 19, 2002 in Beverly Hills, Calif. Clark died today from a heart attack at the age of 82.

This final note today. Dick Clark has passed away. He was 82.

Depending on how old you are, you've probably got different memories of him. "American Bandstand." "New Year's Rockin' Eve." Dick Clark Productions did the Golden Globes and The American Music Awards.

For me, he'll always be the guy who hosted "The $20,000 Pyramid," which I got to watch when I was home sick from school.
