Whether you were watching “America’s Oldest Teenager” introduce new bands on American Bandstand, or raising a glass while he helped you ring in the New Year, you, like the rest of us, likely have fond memories of Dick Clark.

New Year’s Rockin’ Eve co-host Ryan Seacrest issued the following statement: “I am deeply saddened by the loss of my dear friend Dick Clark. He has truly been one of the greatest influences in my life. I idolized him from the start, and I was graced early on in my career with his generous advice and counsel. When I joined his show in 2006 , it was a dream come true to work with him every New Year’s Eve for the last 6 years. He was smart, charming, funny and always a true gentleman. I learned a great deal from him, and I’ll always be indebted to him for his faith and support of me. He was a remarkable host and businessman and left a rich legacy to television audiences around the world. We will all miss him.”
