New Years in "The Big Apple"

America's oldest teenager, Dick Clark, actually turned 80 in November. Despite lingering effects from a stroke in 2004, the former "American Bandstand" host will be back to roll in the new year tonight on ABC's "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2010."
I remember growing up that the best part of saturday morning was waiting and watching "Bandstand" Even writing this the Bandstand theme song is playing in my head!

Dick states.....It's always an exciting evening when we bring in the new year at Times Square. In the early days, the crew consisted of the cameraman, stage manager and my wife. We stood on top of a building with a ladder. These days several hundred people are employed, and the live Times Square coverage is quite an extravaganza!
I'd say he looks amazing for 80.
