Dick Clark Rock'n'roll Collection to Be Sold in NY





Fifty years after Dick Clark first hosted the popular television show that came to be called ''American Bandstand,'' he's ready to let go of some of the rock'n'roll items he's collected.

Thousands of pieces in Clark's memorabilia collection are set to be auctioned on December 5 and 6 by Guernsey's Auction House in New York.

One of the top items is the microphone Clark used for 31 years while hosting the live music and dance show featuring artists from Jerry Lee Lewis to L.L. Cool J.

``It was an extension of my right arm,'' Clark told Reuters. ''I held onto it for several hours a day, every day.''
