Dick Clark: Remembering American Bandstand
"It has a good beat and you can dance to it." That was what you weren't supposed to say when you were picked to Rate-A-Record on American Bandstand. The only problem was...everyone said exactly that.
Then there was the man himself, Dick Clark. Always a gentleman, always smooth as glass, always on top of the music. His contribution to music world can never be measured. All I know, is throughout my youth...he mattered a great deal.
Most of the clips of American Bandstand are not available but here are a few to showcase the diversity that was American Bandstand.
Jerry Lee Lewis "Great Balls of Fire"
Michael Jackson "Push Me Away"
The Doors "Light My Fire"
and who could forget Sheena Easton "Strut"
Thank you Dick Clark.
"So long"....easy journey.
