    Absolutely! American Bandstand was absolutely the center of life in my teen years--

    "It has a great beat, and we can dance to it!"

    Farewell, Dick.

    He was a true American institution. One thing I noticed was Ryan Seacrest's reaction. Seacrest was as close to a protege as Clark had, and he does his mentor proud in terms of industriousness. May Clark rest in peace.
