Max Weinberg no longer leading Conan O’Briens band


City Pages:

In Rick Mason’s epic interview with longtime music legend Al Kooper (who is being honored at the Dakota this Sunday), Kooper dropped an interesting little tidbit about the future of Conan O’Brien’s longtime house band. The band has historically been led by drummer and E Street Band member Max Weinberg, and shares several members with one of Kooper’s bands. Kooper says that while many of his bandmates have moved out West to continue to play behind Conan, Weinberg is no longer going to be a part of O’Brien’s lineup.
