‘Remembering Dick Clark, Billboard April 2012!

Dick Clark covers Billboard’s April 28, 2012 issue. Clark is in American radio and television personality and he is really best known for American Bandstand. Clark had also hosted the game show Pyramid. And we will never forget him for Dick Clark’ New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.

Not many music-business institutions have been around longer than Dick Clark, but Billboard is one of them. From his early days on American Bandstand to April 18, Clark was featured in our pages so many times, and was such a constant presence in the business, that any attempt at a definitive collection of highlights would take weeks.

So we’ve pulled together a collection of 12 articles featuring or about Clark from the past few decades — from what may be his first mention in Billboard more than 50 years ago to a friendly 2003 visit to his offices — that don’t attempt to tell his whole story, but are interesting, charming, telling signposts of a career that is truly unique, and has had an indelible influence on popular culture, music and its business.
