Dick Clark unlikely to attend Academy of Country Music Awards

UPI News Service, 05/02/2005 

Dick Clark, who has canceled all public appearances following a stroke, will most likely not attend the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas.

The syndicated television show "Extra" has learned Clark is walking and talking, undergoing daily therapy and even doing business from his Malibu, Calif., home. But "Extra" says an appearance at the awards show he produces is unlikely.

Mario Lopez, who co-hosted the syndicated TV talk show "The Other Half" with Clark from 2001 to 2003, remains close to the former host of "American Bandstand."

"He's a proud man and very strong willed," Lopez said. "He didn't want anyone to see him in the state he was in. It seemed like the same old Dick."

The 75-year-old music industry icon, who never seemed to age, suffered a stroke in December.

"He hates to miss work," Lopez said. "And he hates to not be there because he's a very hands-on guy. It's just motivating him to get back quicker."
