The creator of "American Bandstand" and "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" had a heart attack Wednesday morning at Saint John's hospital in Santa Monica, a day after he was admitted for an outpatient procedure. He is survived by his children Richard, Duane, and Cindy and his wife Kari Wigton. "America's Oldest Teenager" will be missed.
