Larry King on Dick Clark: "He was very, very good...he entered the room well, the camera liked him"

On Wednesday, television icon and music pioneer Dick Clark passed away at the age of 82, suffering a heart attack following a medical procedure.

This evening on "Piers Morgan Tonight," the program paid tribute to the late legend, welcoming a host of industry insiders and entertainment experts to share their thoughts and memories.

Stopping by the very set he manned for so many years, CNN alum Larry King offered his perspective:

"He was a pioneer, in the early days of television," King told Piers Morgan, the man who replaced him. "He could do anything. He was very, very good. You wouldn't go around quoting Dick Clark, there's no memorable great moments, but he was kind of every man. He was there, he entered the room well. The camera liked him."

For 25 years King hosted his own nightly interview TV program, and on Wednesday, he rejoined CNN in his familiar time slot, reviewing Clark's legacy and longevity with the new 9 p.m. host:

"Even as he aged, most people get older," explained King. "You and I...we could not name the Billboard Top 10. He could name it. I'm sure he could have named it yesterday."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as King and Morgan discuss the man who earned the moniker "America's Oldest Teenager."

    I tend to agree with the latest rumor that Donald Trump is a patsy for the Democratic Party and they are all in on this to help deaeft any chance of a Republican from tasking the White House in the upcoming election in 2012.So if this is not the case then someone inform Donald that the truth is a lot deeper thsn just a birth certificate from Hawaii?
