"Dick Clark made the world a better place," the KISS star says
(WENN) - Numerous stars have come out following the death of television icon Dick Clark, remembering the kindness he showed them.
KISS rocker Gene Simmons says, "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."
