    For you old fogies out there: Tommy Newsom 1929-2007

    From johnnycarson.com

    Tommy Newsom, former saxophonist and assistant music director on The Tonight Show, died April 29, at the age of 78. Newsom's low-key personality, dry sense of humor and drab suits became regular fodder for Johnny's nightly monologues.

    Tommy was also a band arranger. If you ever played in a jazz band, you might have played an arrangement of his.

    He's one of the few people on earth who has played the "Here's Johnny" theme more than the ISU pep band...

    Apparently 40 qualifies as an old fogie because I remember him well. Sad to see him pass. It's amazing how distant your childhood seems at times.

    Well, I'm 41, and considering the age of many posters on here, we are likely considered "old fogies"...
