Dick Clark Is Dead

At one point Dick Clark seemed like an untouchable icon. He became famous for never looking old until he did. I was surprised that he died and that he was only 82. I feel nothing more than the grim realization of mortality. I wrote a song about Dee Dee Ramone whose refrain always seems appropriate at times like this:

Growing old stopped being fun,
All my idols are dead and done,
I lift my glass and raise a toast,
We’re listening to a band of ghosts

Dee Dee Is Dead
