      1. Keith Richards Dead

        Keith Richards in 2006. Hmmm.. Looks dead.. It is odd that he can still play a guitar. I figure he must have died somewhere around 1977….

        This is Keith alive in 1965.

        This is 1972. You can see he’s pretty much already dead. He’s an amazing ex-guy. In 1977 he got busted with a bunch of smack, weed, coke and pills in Canada. They could have given him life in prison, but he was dead so they let him go. Clever ex-guy.

        He even wrote a book after being dead:

        Called Life.

  1. I can’t explain it but it made me cry it made me laugh.Ed Sullivan was a nice guy’I remembered him and will until I die’Ed Sullivan I love you I still remember you.I was very young but those were the days.

    1. I don’t think Leno even gets that sort of reaction from people. I think he’s the closest in current times. It’s not Letterman or O’Brien that are gonna still be entertaining decades after they’ve passed on. I’m a little too young for a lot of Ed Sullivan. I remember a lot more Johnny Carson.

  2. I agree with the first post, cool memories. I grew up in this time period and hardly ever watched Ed Sullivan. As a kid it bored me so I watch other stuff. Too bad. I wish had. But watching this video brings back a lot of memories. I thought the Beatles, Elvis and Ella Fitzgerald were very good. Jim Morrison was pretty good too.

  3. I loved the “Ed Sullivan Show.” It had everything, comedy, singing, jugglers, trained animal acts and when the fat lady came out to sing opera mom would go make us popcorn!

    I don’t suppose there is any way to show the original “Tonight Show” with Jack Parr is there? He had some really great moments on his show. I especially liked listening to him and Oscar Levant talk about anything. Anyhow. . . Jack Parr available?
