Paul Shaffer Might Leave ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ After His Contract Expires

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.”
