Dick Clark Dead @ 82

'World's Oldest Teenager' Dick Clark Dead at 82

 Dick Clark, the ever-youthful television host and producer who helped bring rock 'n' roll into the mainstream on "American Bandstand" and rang in the New Year for the masses at Times Square, has died. He was 82.

 Spokesman Paul Shefrin said Clark had a heart attack Wednesday morning at Saint John's hospital in Santa Monica, where he had gone the day before for an outpatient procedure.

 Clark had continued performing even after he suffered a stroke in 2004 that affected his ability to speak and walk.

Jim Marshall dies @ 88

The world lost one of its true rock and roll pioneers, when guitar amp innovator Jim Marshall died. Marshall, 88, passed away from complications due to cancer. Anyone who has been to a couple of rock shows has seen a big stack of Marshall amps. In the movie "This Is Spinal Tap", character Nigel Tufnel famously proclaimed that his Marshalls could "go to 11". Tributes started pouring out immediately with the news of Marshall's passing.

Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash tweeted: "The news of Jim Marshall passing is deeply saddening. R & R will never be the same w/out him. But, his amps will live on FOREVER!"

Motley Crue bass player Nikki Sixx also paid tribute on Twitter, saying Marshall was "responsible for some of the greatest audio moments in music's history - and 50% responsible of all our hearing loss."

Spurred by a talk with Ritchie Blackmore and Pete Townshend at his amplifier shop, Marshall created what was to become the amplifier of choice for musicians ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Kurt Cobain. In 2003, British citizen Marshall was awarded the OBE for his services to music and for his vast charitable contributions, numbering in the millions of pounds.

In September, the Marshall Amps company will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a tribute concert featuring Iron Maiden, The Cult, Whitesnake and many more Marshall fans at Wembley Arena.
