Video: Mastodon Perform The Motherland on the Late Show with David Letterman
I’m going to miss comedian and talk show host David Letterman when he retires next year. The last fortnight was a prime example of artists stepping it up a notch when they play on the Late Show. Sure, there will be other live musical performances on talk shows after Dave’s long gone (my bets are on Jimmy Fallon taking the reigns of the musical talented) but something will definitely be lost.
Why am I always interested to hear how Letterman responds to the artist after a performance? Does his choice of words seem to prove how great the artists were, or am I just reading into it and he says the same nice things to everyone?
What’s going to happen to Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra when Dave retires? Is there going to be a This Is Spinal Tap reunion that Paul can be involved in?
I dunno, but Letterman wins hands down for the best place to plug in and rock out.
Do your thing, Mastodon!
