    But the question is which band you like better.

    I like O'Brien's Max Weinberg 7.

    Conan's band(max wienberg 7) is the best!

    Conan is also the best late night talk show.

    I saw a taping of Letterman. Those guys rock. Will Lee plays so big. It's cool to watch them. While the guests are on, Paul Shaffer has a fairly intricate series of hand gestures he makes to the band members and they were constantly communicating this way. I found it interesting anyway.
  9. Will Lee is the man.

    I can't stand it when Paul Shaefer sings, though.

    I'd have to say..Leno. I don't really watch late night shows much, but I've seen those who are listed, and Leno's band is great:)

    Plus, Kevin Eubanks is hilarious!

    I wish the SNL band was more involved in the show.

    Is whom ever I play loud on the Hi-Fi after hours.

    Those pros on the tube are no doubt very, very good. But the tunes they play don't motivate me to play.

    Letterman's Band is incredible. Will Lee is incredible, and the horn section is amazing. TIME FOR A BAND-OFF
  16. well, all mentioned are great, but if the Arsineo Hall show was still on,John B Williams(bassist and band leader) and that band would win every time.they were awsome...I used to like it when A. would walk out on stage,give his monolouge,and when he was finished,he'd turn to JBW and say"gimme some funk" and JBW would would start layin down an awsome groove...man that band was great....

    I am terribly sorry for the inconvience. A thousand apollogies, it will never happen again.

    geez...lighten up. Man, if there's a topic that's already been discussed, you know some one at TB will make sure you know it. I think all of you need to lighten up about the 'where have I seen this before' remarks.
