Gotta be Max Weinberg. I will entertain opposing viewpoints, but I’m a Max man.
His full time job (I hate the word ‘gig’) is following in the footsteps of Skitch Henderson, Doc Severinsen and Kevin Eubanks as the leader of The Tonight Show Band.
When he’s taking a break from Conan, he’s on the road with Bruce Springsteen. Two jobs. Cool and way cool.
And when his two worlds collide? He’s turned the drums into a family business. When he has to miss part of the Springsteen tour to tend to his new Tonight Show duties, Bruce has a different drummer for the first time since 1974.
Jay Weinberg. Son of Max.
Again, I will entertain opposing viewpoints, but they better be really good.
