Stephen Colbert Taking Over as ‘Late Show’ Host in 2015

Wow, that was quick — David Letterman already has a replacement for his spot on The Late Show, and he already has plenty of experience behind a desk of some sort, just maybe not in this fashion.

“Never Take Relationship Advice From Phil Spector”: Mick Jagger’s Top Ten From “Letterman”

One night before the Rolling Stones take the stage at the 12.12.12 concert, Mick Jagger visited Late Show With David Letterman to give the Top Ten List. His list included “Nobody wants to hear anything from your new album!” (Advice that Jagger probably doesn’t take too seriously: both of the band’s new songs, “Doom And Gloom” and “One More Shot” have made the band’s setlist at their recent shows.)

David Letterman Talks Vikings, Hobbits With Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones

Letterman was clearly unaware of Page and Jones’ histories as session musicians before they formed Zeppelin, so Plant pointed that they’d both played on a lot of records, and joked that during that time he was working “on the blacktop” and John Bonham was stealing cars. Letterman’s response: “And had you mentioned the part about stealing cars to the Kennedy Center people?”

John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, David Letterman, Buddy Guy, Natalia Makarova, Dustin Hoffman were the honorees at the 35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors

Led Zeppelin, David Letterman, Buddy Guy Celebrated At 35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors

Clearly, it was a departure for the Kennedy Center Honors. Now in it’s 35th year, the ceremony started out by paying tribute to cultural icons like Fred Astaire, Ella Fitzgerald and Tennessee Williams. In recent years, rock has been represented more and more at this prestigious event, with Paul McCartney, Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Elton John and Bruce Springsteen all collecting the Kennedy Center medallion. But past ceremonies probably never got as loud as this year’s.
