We'll Be Here For The Rest of Our Lives (Paul Shaffer with David Ritz)

A memoir filled with humor, introspection, and wonderful showbiz stories as recounted by the one and only Paul Shaffer. We all know Paul - David Letterman's long running musical director and comic foil. What many don't know is that Paul appeared on SNL in its infancy and flirted briefly with having a television show of his own. Beside his Late Show duties, Shaffer is in great demand as a session musician and musical director of such ceremonies as the annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. At times, Shaffer seems like one of those guys on facebook who brags about the number of friends he has and the postings of photos of himself taken with various celebrities. But Paul can be forgiven for all of that. After all, he possesses real talent and has played behind nearly every music superstar of the last quarter century. He even has an obligatory Bob Dylan chapter which leads the book. Shaffer simply loves show bizness and all it entails. (You'll love reading about his long running spoof of the James Brown cape routine.) He also loves his Orthodox Jewish faith and his family that help keep him anchored which is made abundantly clear in the book. A standup guy and an excellent storyteller. Showbiz could use a few more Paul Shaffers.
