On April 25, 1975, John Lennon gave what was to be his last televised interview. As he spoke with Tom Snyder on 'The Tomorrow Show', no one suspected he was about to take an extended hiatus from public life. And no one could have predicted that Tom would rebroadcast that interview five years later - in memoriam - the day after John's tragic death.
This interview with John Lennon that re-aired on December 9, 1980, is one of three conversations Tom had with former members of The Beatles. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were enjoying solo careers at the times of their interviews, and their comments provide further insight into the effects of "Beatlemania" on their lives.
