Wow, first Soul Train, now American Bandstand... not a good year for music show hosts, eh?  (Yikes. I better keep quiet...)

As a teenager growing up in the 1980s, Dick Clark provided me with a window to many of the weird new wave bands that I loved (Blancmange anyone?). "Has a good beat and you can dance to it..." Back then you thought the host might live forever.

New Year's Eve just 
won't be the same... R.I.P.
