    Default Drum Solo Week on Letterman

    This week (6/6--6/10) is drum solo week on David Letterman's show. Apparently each day a different drummer will perform a drum solo. Here is the lineup of drummers for the week:

    Monday 6/6: Anton Fig (Letterman's drummer).
    Tuesday 6/7: Sheila E (interesting choice)
    Wednesday 6/8: Roy Haynes (An 86-year old jazz drummer)
    Thursday 6/9: Neil Peart

    Couldn't find anything on Friday's show yet.

    I was hoping for a better lineup (aside from Peart), but I'm still setting the DVR for each show just for kicks.

    I predict Sheila E will blow your mind. She's an amazing drummer.

    I haven't watched Dave for a lot of years. Hope I remember to tune in Thursday for some Pert.
    Any idea at what point in the shows these solo's take place so that I don't have to sit through an entire hour of Letterman nausea?

    I'd assume it'll be at the end of the show to keep people tuned in. Could be wrong though...

    This should be cool. Looking forward to Mr. Haynes and Neil Peart. For those not familiar with Roy Haynes he is a classic jazz drummer who at 86 still plays with the fire of a twenty year old.

    Funny, almost sounds like something one would have seen on Carson back in the day.

    Not sure, but I believe it'll be after the monologue but before the 1st guest. Last time they did something like this it was magician week, and they came on right before the 1st guest.

    Probably right.

    Would be cool if each guest drummer sat in jamming with the house band throughout the show, finally leading up to the drum solo finale just before the outro jam. Giving Anton the rest of the week off after his Monday spotlight.

    Guess we'll see. Haynes and Pert aren't until Wed and Thur so we should know what to expect by then.

    Don't know why they don't have anything listed for Friday's show (although I believe it's taped on Thursday).
    Maybe it'll be Alex.....

    One of the highlights of my life was to see Buddy play once live. He did a gig at University of Maryland in about 77 and just left the place breathless. He made some jokes about smoking weed and said at least you dont have to get up and piss. He was the best I have ever seen and he was in his 60s when I saw him. I dont like Letterman anymore but Ill be watching this week.

    You can hear so much of Buddy's influence in Neil's playing it's ridiculous. Man he rips......

    Love Letterman. Love Peart. Grew up with both on a weekly basis to this day. Thursday a no brainer.

    And yes, Buddy is to Neil as Eric is to Ed. Fo sho.
