Apparently I'm out of touch; what happened to Dick Clark?

I did a search on his name, but the only thing I got was a post from last New Year's Eve. I caught something on TV a few minutes ago about Dick Clark, a stroke, and ???. What did I miss? I flatly refuse to watch the program they were advertising.

His appearance on the Emmy Awards show Sunday night was his 1st since the stroke almost 2 years ago. His speech is slurred & there will probably be no more TV gigs for DC.

He was on his New Year Eve show last dec.2005.
Mostly shots of him sitting at a desk.
I hope his speech was a bit better on the Emmys.

Yes, he suffered a stroke two years ago. He did make an appearance on New Year's Rockin' Eve (VERY brief!) and had slurred speech (actually, I think the problem was that parts of his face were paralyzed, as often happens to stroke victims).

At that time, he made a very short speech saying that he's feeling fine and hopes to be able to talk and walk better this time next year.

This appearance at the Emmys (which I only saw the tail end of) is the first time we've seen him publicly since then, and he looked and sounded a LOT better this time -- but if you hadn't heard the news, then it would have seemed something of a shock.
