27 September 2010 2:16 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

HollywoodNews.com: Conan O’Brien spoke about Max Weinberg’s departure as bandleader from his TBS late night talk show in November by praising the musician as “incredible.”

“Max has been a huge part of my life for the past 17 years,” said O’Brien in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, “I hope he can find time to stop by the new show, sit in with the band, and pretend to find my monologue funny.”

Weinberg will be replaced by Jimmy Vivino, a longtime guitarist and keyboard player, in Conan’s band.

Weinberg, who also plays drums in Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street band, exclaimed, “17 years — a lifetime on TV.

Max Weinberg Officially Parts Ways with Conan O’Brien

27 September 2010 1:19 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sadly, one of the great host-bandleader unions of all time has come to an end.  Max Weinberg will not be a part of Conan O’Brien’s new TBS late night show, Conan.  Both Weinberg and O’Brien issued statements cordially wishing the other well and saying that Weinberg may drop by the show in the future.

Weinberg probably sealed his fate when swam into the bad blood between O’Brien and Jay Leno and tried to replace Kevin Eubanks on The Tonight Show this past April.  Movieline also reported that Weinberg would “send interns to do gardening work at his house” and “involve staffers in his pay disputes with the network.”  He was also notably absent during Conan’s Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour.  Still, the guy was hilarious and his deadpan face was amazing.  He’ll be missed.  Hit the jump for the press release. »
