Beloved TV personality Dick Clark has died at age 82 after suffering a "massive" heart attack during during a surgical procedure.

The popular host of American Bandstand and Dick Clark's Rocking New Year's Eve was a television mainstay for decades. His last appearance was the 2012 New Years celebration. While his speech was slurred from a previous stroke, Dick still gave the audience his all.

Think of how many bands and artists owed him their success. He may be gone, but his legacy won't soon be forgotten. He will be missed, but somewhere in heaven the angels are dancing.
