From The Hollywood Reporter:
It’s hard to imagine David Letterman without Paul Shaffer by his side, but the late-night host’s longtime sidekick and musical director says he might be ready to call it a day when his Late Show contract expires.
“We’ve been on 30 years so now we’ve got another two years … I’m going to be certainly ready to lie down after that, take a nap,” he told TV Guide Canada over the weekend.
Still, he admitted that nothing is set in stone just yet.
“Life is nutty — anything can happen,” he added. “I’ve been so lucky and blessed to be working this long in show business. And whatever happens now is just gravy to me.”
