Dick Clark Dies in Los Angeles at 82

TMZ is reporting that legendary American Bandstand host Dick Clark has died of a “massive” heart attack in St. John’s hospital in LA. Clark was in the hospital to receive outpatient surgery, and had the attack sometime during his stay. Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.

Aside from American Bandstand, Clark was also the longtime host of New Year’s Rockin’ Eve–a show he ceded to Ryan Seacrest shortly after suffering a stroke in 2004.

Our personal favorite Clark endeavor, however, was Pyramid.
