"The Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder"
John Lennon’s last televised interview is finally available on DVD from Shout! Factory, as well as interviews with Ringo Starr and Paul and Linda McCartney.
On April 25, 1975, John Lennon gave what was to be his last televised interview on “The Tomorrow Show With Tom Snyder.” No one knew then that Lennon would be taking an extended hiatus from public life, taking time to raise his son and live a less public life. Speaking openly on the subjects of drug use, the breakup of the Beatles, and his immigration problems while seeking permanent residency in the U.S., the interview Lennon gave Tom Snyder in 1975 revealed he had tremendous humility and an affecting sense of humor.
Five years after that interview, Lennon was fatally shot while coming home from a recording session. The day after the shooting and Lennon’s tragic death, “The Tomorrow Show” re-aired that last interview in tribute to him. Shout! Factory’s “The Tomorrow Show With Tom Snyder: John, Paul, Tom & Ringo” contains the complete interview with Lennon as rebroadcast on December 9, 1980, along with interviews from that day with journalist Lisa Robinson and Lennon friend and producer Jack Douglas. The show is a poignant remembrance of the aftermath of his murder and the huge void his passing had on music and, indeed, the world.
The 2-DVD set “The Tomorrow Show With Tom Snyder: John, Paul, Tom & Ringo” also includes a 1981 interview with Ringo Starr, who discusses his film and music career, as well as remembrances of his band mate and friend John Lennon, and a 1979 interview with Paul and Linda McCartney, Denny Laine & Laurence Juber, from a stage in London, who were then enjoying huge success with Wings.
