"I first met the man backstage, when Kiss was about to do his concert TV show in 1974. This was our first year out there but by then DICk Clark was already an icon. He made it a point to come up to our small, cluttered dressing room, stretch out his arm, and say, 'If there's anything you need, just let me know. It's a pleasure to have you here.' And I never forgot the kind gesture... DICk Clark made the world a better place." Kiss star Gene Simmons pays tribute to late TV legend DICk Clark.
