Kevin Eubanks Reveals Why He Was Upset With Jay Leno
In an interview with Hollywoodnews, Kevin Eubanks finally acknowledged some animosity toward Jay Leno. Though he didn’t say he was outright pissed, he did say that he wished he had some input regarding Leno’s 10:00 transition. He said that although he wasn’t pushing his opinions, he still hoped that “someone might listen to an idea.” I understand why Eubanks might have felt creatively disrespected, but he isn’t a writer – he’s a musician. Yes he had the obligatory laugh at ALL of Jay Leno’s jokes, but asking to give creative input when you’re not a comedian or a writer, is like Leno telling Eubanks how to play his guitar.
