As a long-time fan of Letterman, I’ve always been amused by his interactions with bands after they perform on his show. (Just see his banter with Haim the other night as an example of why.) However, I sadly never picked up on an apparent recurring theme: his fascination with drums, specifically if drummers in bands performing on his show own or rent their drums.
Now, I’m not sure if this is some sort of inside joke or what, but this supercut of Dave bantering with drummers about their drums — along with some love tossed to a few musicians who play other instruments — is just so damn fun. Enjoy!
