With his ageless persona, Clark had an uncanny ability to tap into the social consciousness of America’s youth. After having served in front of the camera for many years, most notably as host of American Bandstand, Clark formed his own production company which produced numerous family entertainment hits and game shows including the $20,000 Pyramid, created the American Music Awards show, and published a variety of self-help and rock memorabilia books.
