Grammy-winner Paul Shaffer has been David Letterman’s musical director and sidekick for 27 years. Shaffer spent five years with the original “Saturday Night Live,” during which he played keyboards, composed special musical material, co-founded The Blues Brothers, and was a featured performer (which included his unforgettable Don Kirshner impression). Shaffer composed the LATE SHOW theme song and co-wrote the timeless classic “It’s Raining Men”, and has recorded with such diverse artists as Diana Ross, Yoko Ono and Robert Plant’s Honeydrippers, in addition to his own albums, “Coast to Coast” (1989) and “The World’s Most Dangerous Party” (1993.) He’s appeared in numerous feature films, including portraying prototypical promo man Artie Fufkin in the seminal mockumentary “This Is Spinal Tap”. His first book, We’ll Be Here For The Rest of Our Lives – A Swingin’ Showbiz Saga, is in stores now.
