Dick Clark: (11/30/29 – 4/18/12)

Known as "the world's oldest teenager" for his baby-faced look, Dick Clark rose to be the American media mogul that he was due to the success of his television show American Bandstand. The wildly popular show featured teenagers dancing to Top 40 hits. Throughout the 28 years that American Bandstand aired on television, Dick Clark had the honor of highlighting and interviewing the nation's biggest pop stars, including a number of R&B and hip hop acts. Unfortunately, Clark passed away on April 18, 2012. His legacy, however, will live on through the artists he helped to make famous. Here's a list of some of the familiar faces you may recognize from the Bandstand archives.
