What I Miss Most About the Late Show

Closer Weekly - - News Now -

And the No. 1 thing David Let­ter­man misses about host­ing the Late Show? Ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the live mu­si­cal per­for­mances! “I had it ev­ery night for 33 years,” he re­flected to Closer on Oct. 22, while in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., to be hon­ored with The Mark Twain Prize for Amer­i­can Hu­mor. “You can get [mu­sic] off of any de­vice you have,” said David, 70, who re­tired from his late-night CBS talk show in 2015. “But there’s some­thing [great] about live mu­sic and watch­ing [the band] that makes the live mu­sic.”

“I’m do­ing this for my son,” David told Closer of ac­cept­ing the Twain award.

“I’m 70. I’m still in my prime!”

David first ap­peared on The Tonight Show Star­ring Johnny Car­son on Nov. 24,
