Can't trust anybody these days, can you Conan O'Brien?
Max Weinberg, Conan's longtime bandleader, is said to be uninterested in following his ginger-headed boss into the unknown and instead, is considering an open position at NBC.
Sources suggest that Max is looking to take over the bandleader postion on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, once Kevin Eubanks finally leaves the show!
Though neither reps for Leno, O'Brien or Weinberg are saying anything about it, it should be noted that Max's name is nowhere near the list of performers joining Conan on his summer tour, starting this month, nor did NBC deny the rumor when asked about it. "No comment" to us pretty much means "yes, but we're not ready to tell you that yet"!
Ah, this should be interesting. Just when you thought the mudslinging was over, a fresh batch is coming your way, Jay! Should have found a way to just keep Kevin! He's got class!
