Tom Snyder, R.I.P.

SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- Talk show host Tom Snyder, whose smoke-filled interviews were a staple of late night television, has died after a struggle with leukemia. He was 71.


Tom Snyder is most closely associated with "The Tomorrow Show," which he hosted from 1973 to 1981.

Snyder died Sunday in San Francisco from complications associated with leukemia, said his longtime producer and friend Mike Horowicz.

Known for his improvised, casual style and robust laughter, Snyder conducted a number of memorable interviews as host of NBC's "The Tomorrow Show." Among his guests were John Lennon, Charles Manson and Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols.

He gained more fame when Dan Aykroyd lampooned him in the early days of "Saturday Night Live."

He had a great laugh.

I didn't know he was sick either. I was sad when he left his CBS Show (the one after Letterman). He did indeed have a great laugh. I figured most of the young people on this forum would have no idea who he was. Sad...

I'm pretty sure he introduced U2 as "the u2" when they appeared on his show in the early '80's.

I really liked him, it sounds weird but he had very expressive eyebrows!

He was a genius. Honestly, he has my complete respect for this interview alone:

God, how I hate Lydon and the Sex Pistols. Biggest phonies in music history, and possibly the least talented revered band in recent memory.

Their "Filthy Lucre" reunion tour from the late 90's, only affirmed what sellout whores they've always been, and making fun of the fact that you're selling out does not excuse selling out.

Douchebag.

Agreed. The arrogance and nihilism in that interview is stunning. Why do people have to be such bastards? I mean, honestly.

Can't stand the Sex pistols either... but his interview with the Clash was hilarious!
