PHOTOS: Dick Clark’s face through the years

Music industry impresario Dick Clark died of a heart attack Wednesday. He was 82. Known for many decades for his youthful appearance, he wore the nickname of “America’s oldest teenager,” well until he suffered a serious stroke in 2004. Despite the setback, he continued to play a part on the annual televised New Year’s Eve celebration he began hosting in 1972. “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” was just one of the many TV shows he hosted, including the “Pyramid” game shows, “TV’s Bloopers & Practical Jokes” and most famously, “American Bandstand,” which he hosted from 1952 through 1989.

Clark took over as host of the hit game show (and its many incarnations over the following decades) “The $10,000 Pyramid” in 1973.
