CLEVELAND -- Dick Clark may be gone, but his legacy is immortalized forever in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The legendary entertainment icon is one of the few non-performers inducted into the music shrine based on his influence on the industry.

Following Clark's death, Terry Stewart, the President and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum issued the following statement:
"With the passing of Dick Clark, we lost a real hero who had untold influence on both world culture and the art form we call rock and roll. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, Clark was a trendsetter who helped guide our tastes in music, dance and fashion for more than three decades. His show 'American Bandstand' was instrumental in showing the world that rock and roll was here to stay."
Dick Clark was inducted that year with 10 others including Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Doors, Etta James, Van Morrison and Sly and the Family Stone.
Clark passed away Wednesday at the age of 82.
