Dick Clark died yesterday morning at the age of 82.  To call him an entertainment legend would be doing him a disservice.

Dick Clark was more than that, I don't really know how to put it into words, but he was above entertainment.  I know that I'm not the only one who feels that way, especially by the outpouring on Twitter from celebrities.Snoop Dogg: "REST IN PEACE to the DICK CLARK!! U were pioneer n a good man!!Thank u sir"

Mario Lopez: "Just heard the news of Dick Clark... It was truly an honor to have worked with him, learn from him and to be able to call him a friend. He was a great man and an even better friend. The word legend is thrown around a lot, but it's never more appropriate than when used in describing Mr. Clark.. He was a real inspiration & influence in my life. I will dearly miss my friend... Rest well DC"

D.L. Hughley: "RIP Dick Clark worked with him on New Years Rockin Eve and TV Bloopers always a class act!"
