Los Angeles - Dick Clark, the television host who helped bring rock 'n' roll into the mainstream on American Bandstand, has died. He was 82.

Spokesperson Paul Shefrin says Clark died of a massive heart attack at Saint John's hospital in Santa Monica, a day after he was admitted for an outpatient procedure.

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

Long dubbed "the world's oldest teenager" because of his boyish appearance, Clark also was a successful businessman. He hosted an annual New Year's Eve special and supplied a variety of game shows and music specials to TV, including the American Music Awards.

The original American Bandstand was one of network TV's longest-running series as part of ABC's daytime lineup from 1957 to 1987.

Over the years, it introduced stars ranging from Buddy Holly to Michael Jackson to Madonna.
