Reports have hit the web that there are rumours that Max Weinberg, Conan’s longtime bandleader could be leaving Conan to fill in Kevin Eubanks when he leaves the “Tonight Show”. Sources claim that Max and Conan O’ Brien haven’t been getting along, having a heated feud against each other behind the scenes.
More on it here:
Before people go thinking that Max Weinberg stabbed Conan in the back, don’t always make assumptions. In my opinion, I don’t think Conan and Max have any bad blood against each other at all. They’ve been friends for years and have known each other for years. If you knew how smart and intelligent Conan is, I don’t think he would get angry at Max leaving him for Jay. Conan would feel happy for Max about it. Besides, this doesn’t mean Max will be leaving Conan for good. He may only be taking over for Kevin Eubanks for just a little while until Kevin returns. Then maybe Max will go back to Conan after that. I don’t believe for a second that they are hating on each other all of a sudden. Stupid gossip sites.
