Dick Clark ...... Forever Young


Just heard about the loss of Dick Clark. 
This is so very sad. Truly the end of an era. 
That sweet, forever-young man was an institution. 
I learned how to dance watching American Bandstand. 
I even remember the song playing.....
Stevie Wonder's Signed, Sealed, Delivered.

Dick Clark was a major force behind so many musical artists, too many to name. Long before there was American Idol, 
it was a coveted gig for a musical act 
to appear on American Bandstand. 

Every year following his stroke, I made a point of tuning in to New Year's Rockin' Eve, because I didn't want to miss what could possibly be his last TV appearance. Not for fear of him passing on (because he never seemed to age), but that it would just prove too difficult for him because of his stroke. 
He was one of those people 
you were sure would live forever.......

RIP sweet man. 
You will always have a special place in my heart.......
