Dick Clark, the well-known television producer and host, has died. Clark suffered a massive heart attack after undergoing an outpatient procedure, and attempts at resuscitation failed.
Dick Clark's health has been on a steady decline since he suffered a stroke back in 2004, which led to him being forced to retire from his post as host of New Year's Rockin' Eve (which Ryan Seacrest took over two years later.)
We're sad to report that former pro-wrestler "Macho Man" Randy Savage has died after suffering a heart attack while driving. Savage lost control of the vehicle (a 2009 Jeep Wrangler,) veered into oncoming traffic, and collided head-on into a tree. He was taken to Largo Medical Center, and died there from his injuries. His wife, Lynn, was a passenger in the vehicle, and suffered minor injuries. The couple celebrated their 1-year wedding anniversary earlier this month. Randy Savage was 58, a former WWF and WCW World Champion, participated in what many call the greatest pro wrestling match in WrestleMania history (against Ricky Steamboat,) and is the greatest pro wrestler to have yet to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. He later started an acting career, which included Savage playing the role of Bonesaw in Spider-Man.

Randy Jackson has been hospitalized with a suspected mild heart attack.
The 48-year-old singer - who is the brother of the late Michael Jackson - was taken to the Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena yesterday and is said to be awaiting test results.
“It appears Randy has had a mild heart attack but he is OK. He was joking around with his father and he is feeling pretty good all things considered. He’s been under a tremendous amount of stress lately but Randy’s a fighter. He’ll pull through,” a source said.
Randy is believed to have been working on arrangements for a memorial service for his late brother Michael, who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June last year. On Monday, Randy attended a Los Angeles courthouse with family including sister Janet Jackson for a hearing into the involuntary manslaughter case against Dr. Conrad Murray, the man accused of being involved in the icon’s death.
The star has also been playing a key role in arranging plans to allow fans to enter Forest Lawn Memorial Park - where Michael is buried - to pay tribute to the King of Pop on the anniversary of his death later this month.
