Dick Clark -- the TV
host and producer known for "American Bandstand" and his "New Year's Rockin' Eve"
festivities -- died April 18 at the age of 82. Clark, whose youthful looks earned
him the nickname "America's Oldest Teenager," died from a heart attack.
He suffered a serious stroke in 2004, causing him to step aside from his Times
Square countdown, but he returned a year later. Over his decades-long career, Clark
earned Emmys, Grammys, and induction into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.
