Hey Folks

We are gonna go back in time. You older folks like me will remember these days, I hope they bring back some good memories. For you young folks who were not around during those days, you will see a true legend who brought many performers(Including the Beatles) for mass exposure to the folks at home. I remember seeing the Beatles and hearing the old folks talking about their long hair.

If you can not watch it all now, please take time when you can to watch this excellent Tribute to Ed Sullivan. I think you will enjoy it !






Edward Vincent Sullivan (September 28, 1901 October 13, 1974) was an American entertainment writer and television host, best known as the emcee of a popular TV variety show called The Ed Sullivan Show that was at its height of popularity in the 1950s and 1960s.He was a former Boxer. His Show was a Sunday Night Regular

Sullivan himself had little acting ability; his mannerisms on camera were somewhat awkward and often caricatured by comedians who called him "Old Stone Face," owing to his deadpan delivery. Columnist Harriet Van Horne alleged that "he got where he is not by having a personality, but by having no personality."

In the 1950s and 1960s, Sullivan was a respected starmaker because of the number of performers that became household names after appearing on the show. He had a knack for identifying and promoting top talent and paid a great deal of money to secure that talent for his show.

Sullivan appreciated African American talent. He paid for the funeral of dancer Bill 'Bojangles' Robinson out of his own pocket. He also defied pressure to exclude African American musicians from appearing on his show. In 1969, Sullivan presented the Jackson 5 with their first single "I Want You Back", which ousted B. J. Thomas's "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" from the top spot of Billboard's pop charts.

There was another side to Sullivan: he could be very quick to take offense if he felt he had been crossed, and could hold a grudge for a long time. This could unfortunately be seen as a part of his TV personality. Jackie Mason, Bo Diddley, Buddy Holly, and The Doors became intimately familiar with Sullivan's negative side.

By 1971, the show was no longer in television's top 20. New CBS executives, who wanted to attract younger viewers, canceled the show along with virtually all of the network's oldest shows. Sullivan was so upset and angry that he refused to do a final show.

The Doors - "Light My Fire" Live @ The Ed Sullivan Show
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQ0CnlC_w3E
"On September 17, 1967 The Doors appeared on the show. The show's network censors demanded the group to change its lyrics for their hit song Light My Fire, altering the line "Girl, we couldn't get much higher" because of what the censors said was a reference to drugs. Jim Morrison, the band's lead singer, didn't agree and sang the original line instead with no notice to the show's producers. Morrison insisted that it was an accident, and that he meant to change the lyric but was so nervous about performing on live television that he forgot to change it when he was singing. Sullivan was reportedly so furious that he refused to shake their hands. They were never invited back."

One Ed missed out on

After refusing to compromise with Ed Sullivan over song selections, the always intelligently intuitive Mr. Allen presented America with it's initial televised introduction of the young genius who would soon change the course of multiple lyrical genres.

Sullivan was married to the former Sylvia Weinstein from April 28, 1930, until her death on March 16, 1973. They had one daughter, Betty Sullivan (who married the Sullivan show's producer, Bob Precht). Sullivan was in the habit of calling Sylvia after every program to get her immediate critique.

During 1974 the man known as "Old Stone Face" died of esophageal cancer at age 73 at New York's Lenox Hill Hospital, coincidentally on a Sunday night. His funeral was attended by 3,000 at St. Patrick's Cathedral, New York on a cold, rainy day. Sullivan is interred in a crypt at the Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York.


I hope you all take time when you got it and enjoy this trip back in time, I'm gonna watch them all before the day is over.

Kenny

I can't wait to watch all these, Kenny. Thanks so much! It wasn't a Sunday night at my house growing up unless Ed Sullivan was on. Who remembers Topo Gigio??? I loved it when he was on.

That Rutles clip really brought back the great memories for me...
Like the time Conrad Birdie came to town to do his farewell performace, and Dad kept singing "We're gonna be on- Ed Sullivan!"

Seriously, though, great stuff. I'm just sorry the Sly clip seems to have been pulled.

I don't know if anyone remembers a short-lived TV show form the late 60's/early 70's called the Copycats. It was all impersonators. One of the funniest things I've ever seen was the Ed Sulliivan bit. John Byner (the best Sullivan impersonator ever) played Ed auditioning an Ed Sullivan impersonator (played by Sullivan himself.) Byner tears Sullivan's impersonation (of himself) apart. Everyone on the set (director, cameraman, extras) all join in tearing Sullivan to shreds - all the while doing their own Sullivan impersonations. Must of been 10 Sullivan impersonators telling Ed himself how bad he was at doing Sullivan

Bumping up a few tributes, It's almost Saturday night. May be a few folks that have not seen them.

Then they will sink back down the their resting place.
