His epitaph should be "He had a good beat and the kids could dance to it." Seems like that's what every teenager that he held a mike in front of on AB said when he would ask them what they thought of a new record.

I once had the job of auditing his NY State income tax filings around 20 years ago. I worked with his accountant, of course, by mail, with the issue being proper allocation of his NY source income when he worked his "New Year's Rocking Eve" gigs in NY (he lived in CA at the time). I remember that his accountant kept meticulous records, and Mr. Clark received a "no change" on his taxes (the equivalent of a gold star, I guess).


RIP.

We watched him on Bandstand as a kid and teenager. We also watched a Dick Clark Beechnut Gum show he had on tv in the 60's. And also 20000 Pyramid and New Yrs Eve. New Yrs won't be the same without him.
