RIP Bill Walsh, Tom Snyder

Bill Walsh. Synonymous with the 'West Coast Offense' and Coors Light.

Tom Snyder, responsible for the seminal KISS interview of all-time*, known to our generation as 'that old guy that used to be on at the same time as Conan'.

Both good guys. Both gone. Both with white hair.

In honor, I will post clips of what they are both best known for. And when I say, 'best known for', I mean in my ignorant, uninformed eyes.**

*This interview was in the KISS Disco era ('Kissco' if you will), right before they broke up. You probably don't have time to watch both clips at work, as it is quite long, but trust me, it's worth it. I think it's going to be included in the new KISSOLOGY Vol. 2. Ace is wasted, Peter keeps talking about guns, Gene is annoyed and Paul is mildly amused.

**Clearly I am not giving either their proper due. They did more with their lives than I could ever hope to do. But did either of them have a blog? Quite possible, but given their ages, unlikely.
