The producers at BIO.com review hundreds of photos of famous figures each week, from award-winning actors and popular singers, to headliners and scandal makers. While we're digging through these archives, we often come across amazing photos that we're just dying to share. So, without further ado, here's the one image that stands out to us this week:
Dick Clark hanging with his jukebox in his Burbank, California office. This past year we bid a fond farewell to a man whose name has become synonymous with New Years Eve. Dick Clark was a television icon whose name now lives on every December 31st with Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve (now with the add-on of Ryan Seacrest). Clark began his program in response to the lack of New Year's specials catered towards a younger crowd. The show originally aired on NBC in 1973 and was hosted by the a band called Three Dog Night. The second special was hosted by George Carlin in 1974 and the following year it moved to ABC with Dick Clark taking over as host. Last year was Clark's final appearance on the show, but New Years Eve will always belong to the memory of "America's Oldest Teenager."
