RIP: Tom Snyder

CATAGORIES: REST IN PEACE — FloridaBill @ 8:25 am


SAN FRANCISCO (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.
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.

    I used to watch his show all the time. Best memory is him interviewing “Meatloaf” whom he repeatedly called “Meatballs” : )

    I just remember he smoked like a chimney and was sort of blunt, if not downright rude.

    One of Dan Aykroyd’s best impressions!
