Paul Shaffer has never been a rock star. He'll likely never be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
BUT, he has had his hand in so many things musically, his contribution to the music world cannot be denied.
As the original music director for SNL, where he backed up iconic comic performances  by John Belushi and Bill Murray...to serving as music director for David Letterman from 1982-2015, backing up musicans too numerous to list...serving as bandleader for the "We Are The World" recording session, co-writing the timeless hit "It's Raining Men", and recording with icons from Robert Plant, BB King, Diana Ross and Yoko Ono...oh...and he was also in the greatest Rock & Roll movie of all time, THIS IS SPINAL TAP!!!

And now, he has his own music interview show "Paul Shaffer Plus One" on AXS TV debuting 9/15!!
