Dick Clark, the pioneering TV host of American Bandstand, passed away this morning after suffering a heart attack. We’ll have a complete obituary of America’s Oldest Teenager over on VH1 Tuner.

Other broadcasters, from Al Roker to MTV alum Dave Holmes, were also saddened by the news.
And there were, of course a number of musicians, from Hanson to Snoop Dogg, mourning the man who helped make popular music a mainstay on TV.
