Johnny Carson R.I.P.

Johnny Carson has passed away at the age of 79. While Carson didn’t feature as many bands as say Letterman or Conan O’Brien, Carson reminds me of what some people said of the Beatles in that he was almost universally liked and admired by both parents and their kids. You might not have watched the Tonight show that often but you certainly knew who Johnny Carson was. To me he was one of those rare crossover performers from the ’60s “brat pack” era that managed to stay enjoyably irrelevant. Late night TV was never the same once he left.


  1. No I actually mean irrelevant. Carson was almost completely irrelevant to the things and people that I was interested in but he was enjoyable to watch none the less.
