Gary Dell’Abate said Roger Ebert tweeted Howard was the “greatest interviewer of all time” after hearing yesterday’s Billy Joel interview.

Howard was humbled. “Boy, that’s nice,” he said, before noting Roger had recently sent him a chess set. “It’s all white pieces. Yoko, I think, designed it.”

Howard said the color seemed to be some kind of comment on war. “It’s like an art piece,” he concluded.
