Dick Clark, who brought rock and roll to the masses as the longtime host of "American Bandstand," is dead after suffering a heart attack, according to several news reports. The always smiling 82-year-old TV producer and host had been at St. John's Hospital in Los Angeles after undergoing an outpatient procedure on Tuesday, according to TMZ.

The East Broad Street cemetery has been closed to the public since late singer Whitney Houston's Sunday burial.
Whitney Houston fans hoping to pay their respects will have to wait a little longer. Fairview Cemetery, where the late pop star was laid to rest in a private service Sunday morning, remains closed to anyone other than lot owners, a spokesman for the cemetery said Wednesday morning. The private cemetery, where Houston's father, John Russell Houston Jr. was buried in 2003, has admitted those with loved ones interred there but has kept all others outside the gated property. When the cemetery will reopen to the public "has not been determined at this point," the spokesman said. More than 100 fans lined up outside the 105-acre cemetery Sunday morning to say their goodbyes to Houston, who died on Feb. 11 at the age of 48.

Procession arrived at noon Sunday for burial ceremony at Fairview Cemetery. Nearly 100 fans shouted 'We love you, Whitney' as hearse turned into the cemetery.
The vigil at Fairview Cemetery began at first light Sunday morning. There were no mourners, just reporters and photographers mingling congenially as they staked out a good spot for their reports back to the network morning shows or a position for the perfect photo of the funeral procession bringing Whitney Houston to the cemetery for her burial. Police officers arrived before daylight, at 6 a.m., to secure every possible corner of the Fairview property, from the Cranford border along Union County College to the south and E. Broad Street to the north. At the western end of the cemetery, Gallows Hill Road was closed to prevent any neighborhood street from messing up any potential route in which the procession of hearses and limos that would …

Rumors continue to circulate as to when and where the late pop star will be laid to rest.
As cruisers from the Westfield and Union County police departments came and went through the front gate of the Fairview Cemetery Thursday, Fairview officials were issuing "no comments" to a barrage of calls from reporters seeking comment and details about the burial plans for Whitney Houston — and calming down concerned family members of those already interred in the Westfield cemetery. Houston's funeral service will be held at noon Saturday at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark. The ceremony is expected to draw 1,500 mourners, including her mother, Cissy Houston, cousin Dionne Warwick, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Kevin Costner and Clive Davis.
