My Dad, Bill Damhorst, died in 1971. He was a BIG Johnny Carson fan. I recall he even had a "Johnny Carson" suit! Learning of Johnny's death rekindled fond memories of my Dad. My condolences to all.

It is unthinkable that Johnny is no longer with us. His humor was unmatched--I feel fortunate to have been part of his audience all those years. No one in my lifetime will take his place.

I was privaledged to be at the taping of the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson about 6 months before his retirement. Robin Williams and Jonathan Winters were on. What a treat! I also call Johnny "the man I spent my wedding night with." lol. I used to watch the Tonight Show and wait for the ball to drop in Times Square every New Year's Eve. I got married New Year's Eve 1971..and true to form, I watched the Tonight Show. I'm surprised my husband didn't divorce me. Thanks for the memories Johnny!

Johnny was the best host the tonight show ever had. Unlike the current host Johnny would at least have guest hosts from time to time. I guess Leno is still insecure.
