Oh my God!
DICK CLARK DIED!
I swear I really thought he was immortal. I thought he would never ever die...

So many Saturday mornings watching American Bandstand...
Probably where my love of music came from.

Yeah, I know. But I love his performances there, and since I have the DVD it's easier than pulling up a bunch of other live You Tube clips :)

The woman embodied the Disco Era - no one else even came close to defining it the way she did. And this was probably her most gutsy song:

His character was a big part of my enjoyment of the Pink Panther movies. Glad to hear that he died in his sleep. Peaceful way to go.
