Will Lee Discusses the End of His Gig on Letterman

After the final show of the Late Show with David Letterman, One On1 shared this interview with Will Lee. During the segment, they of course focused heavily on his years in the World’s Most Dangerous Band/CBS Orchestra, but they also got into his early years.

Some of the funnier parts included his admission that he never practices (with the more serious “why”), and how he “hates every bass”.

I really can believe that he never practiced. If you are on gigs, sessions and jams all day long you just dont find time or the need to practice.
It is practice while playing.
