Dick Clark: The Go-Gos and Peter Frampton remember a pop music icon
Belinda Carlisle of The Go-Go's: "He left a huge mark. That's all you can really ask for in this life is to leave the world where you won't be forgotten."
Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go's: "He helped so many bands. Being on his show several times, it was so helpful to our careers. He was always such a kind and gentle guy, and really thoughtful and he loved music. So we're really sad about it."
Peter Frampton: "I was interviewed by him and also did 'American Bandstand' in the '80s, just the last few years of it. He's an institution. I was blown away being asked to do the show. I never thought I'd be able to. I think he was an innovator in sort of promoting acts, which was great from a radio and TV point of view. It's changed so drastically, hasn't it? Everything's on the Internet now. ['American Bandstand'] was one of a kind."
Carly Simon: "He helped me onto a bus once that I couldn't quite get my foot up to it. And he helped me up. I said, 'Thank you so much.' I didn't get a look at his face right away. And it turned out to be Dick Clark. This was in 1995."
Tom Higgenson of the Plain White T's: "We didn't meet him, but we did do his " Rockin' New Year's Eve" a few years ago. Just to be a part of that was a milestone."
