Everybody's Talkin' 'bout Tommy Smothers.....


The Smothers Brothers have a place in Beatles history.   Not only did they premiere several Beatles promo films, but they also had both George and Ringo on their program.  And we can't forget that the Smothers Brothers were the group that John and Harry heckled and got in big trouble in LA.   Tommy also was at the Bed-In in Montreal and was on the "Give Peace a Chance" song. 

Sadly, Tommy Smothers passed away yesterday, December 26, 2023.    


  1. Very sad to hear that. He seemed like a real cool guy. Got to record with John and is seen in the video of the recording of Give Peace A Chance. I totally forgot that Ringo was on their show around 1975 and sang The No No Song. Check out Tommy's impression on Johnny Carson from 1992. It is HILARIOUS Γ nd spot on! May he rest in peace! πŸ™πŸ˜‡ (MarkZapp)

  2. And he is mentioned in the Give Peace a Chance lyrics. "everybody's talikng about...Tommy Smothers".

    1. I just realized "everybody talking about" is the name of the post.

  3. it was a great act they had - very funny
