Longtime famed TV host and music industry pioneer Dick Clark passed away early this morning in Los Angeles following a “massive heart attack,” according to his agent Paul Shefrin. Reports say Clark was undergoing an “outpatient” procedure in St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif. Tuesday night and suffered from a heart attack following it.
