David Letterman's final show this week proved to be a tearjerker buttressed with performances from some of Dave's favorite artists--including none other than Mr. Bob Dylan. And for Bob, this may have been a performance to be remembered.
Strumming a twelve-string and, half-surprisingly, accompanied by a band of four behind him, The Tallest Man on Earth took to Conan on May 20 to perform the track, "Sagres" off his latest LP, 'Dark Bird is Home.'
When funny man Late Show host David Letterman called it quits, so, too, did his sidekick/bandleader Paul Shaffer disband the CBS Orchestra. While everyone else is paying attention to Letterman's retirement, it's easy to overlook another painful fact that Classicalites will soon have to get used to--the end for America's most pithy bandleader, Paul Shaffer.
Stephen Colbert was surprisingly composed in the last episode of his beloved news satire The Colbert Report--which ended on Dec. 18 and featured guests such as James Franco, Katie Couric, Jon Stewart, Yo-Yo Ma and so many more.
It's always been hard to pull off performing well on television--but not in the case of Interpol, who brooded with incendiary poise on Letterman in light of their much discussed LP El Pintor.
