Dick Clark is dead

 

Dick Clark
Dick Clark ... the early years. Picture from Time

He was called America’s oldest teen. But with the passing of Dick Clark a bunch of people under the age 25 are asking the question … “Dick who?”

 

But really, Clark did have a significant impact on music as we know it today. A ton of artists are coming out to honor the fallen media icon for helping shape the tastes of popular culture but also helping to shape the industry. It’s not just the Ryan Seacrests of the world who are speaking fondly of Clark, rockers from the likes of old-school KISS and even Disturbed are saying nothing but nice things. Paul Stanley says that when he was a kid he would be glued to the boob-tube to watch Clark’s creation America Bandstand. Stanley said that Clark was the face of rock and roll and it’s best ambassador. Disturbed’s David Draiman said “So sad, really thought he might be a vampire. Never seemed to grow old.” Clark died from what handlers called an extreme heart attack. He was 82.

 

Other tid-bits

 

Some other things to tell you about, the video for Chevelle’s “Hats Off To The Bull” is available online for you to watch over and over and over again. System of a Down front man Serj Tankian’s new solo album has a release date. Expect to pick up Harakin July 10th. Oh, and it’s unofficial but Rush may be coming to the Scottrade Center in St. Louis September 22nd. We’ll keep you posted.
