I was so sad this morning to find out that Tom Snyder had died. I was always a huge fan of his. Starting with when he had the TOMorrow show and interviewed everyone from movie stars to out and out nutcases, all with the same aplomb. I loved that he was a bit of stuffed shirt, but with a real interest in the fringe. And on top of everything he was a fantastic story teller. If there was anyone on TV that would be fun to share a beer with it would be Tom.

This clip is quentisential Tom Snyder. Dealing with a high Johnny Rotten in a way only he could.

He was one of a kind.

He was a class act. There aren't any left like him. He was completely "un-self-serving" and a great interviewer.
