from Grand Forks, ND said on Goodreads:

Terrific. Full of show business stories, just the way we like it.



from The United States said on Goodreads:

Paul Shaffer is a living legend. I didn't know that going in, but I'm sure he is now.



from The United States said on Goodreads:

Fun read! Paul Shaffer has had a great musical career, I enjoyed reading about it. He is clearly connected to some amazing musicians and others in some deep ways.



from Calgary, Canada said on Goodreads:

Didn't know a lot about Paul Shaffer and found it was an interesting read. I'm sure he could have told more stories but you do have limited time for your audiences. I didn't realize that he was so connected in the music industry!



from Downers Grove, IL said on Goodreads:

I've always liked Paul from wathching him on David Letterman, but this book was a little disappointing. It jumped around a lot, and it didn't feel like the individual stories had much depth.



from Rockville, MD said on Goodreads:

Paul Shaffer has had a very interesting life in music and this book just scratches the surface. It is chock full of funny stories. All are great and you get the feeling that he kept some of the best out of the book. Very enjoyable.



from Chicago, IL said on Goodreads:

I really loved this book! My Dad just finished it and loved it too! It's all about Paul and his many moments meeting various music and comedy stars throughout the years. A quick read-it was funny, endearing and I could appreciate the moments where Paul met his musical heroes.

Summary

From Paul Shaffer, lifelong music junkie, hipster, and longtime leader of David Letterman's band, comes a candid, endearing, hilarious, and star-studded memoir of a life in-and love of-show business.

How does a kid go from a remote Canadian town at the tip of Lake Superior to the bright lights of Broadway and a gig leading the band on Letterman? This book is Paul Shaffer's answer to that question. From playing seedy strip joints in Toronto, to his first legitimate job out of college-which found him working with future stars (and friends) Gilda Radner, Martin Short, and Eugene Levy-to being first musical director of the nascent Saturday Night Live and helping to form the Blues Brothers, to being onstage every night with Dave and playing with the greatest musicians of our time, Shaffer has lived the ultimate showbiz life.

Now, in this hilarious, entertaining, and candid memoir-in which he dishes on everyone from John Belushi and Jerry Lewis to Mel Gibson and Britney Spears-Paul gives us the full behind-the-scenes story of his life, from banging out pop tunes on the piano at the age of 12 to leading the band every night at the Sullivan Theater.
