Paul and Gord must have met on SNL in 1976 when Shaffer was musical director.

It would be interesting to hear what they will say to each other in Ovtober.

Too bad Lightfoot didn't do Lettermans' show back in 1982. He could have plugged "Harry Tracy" and sung "My Love For You"..

I wonder what song he will do...

Pretty sure he'll just sing..rarely does Letterman talk to the performers after they've sung. He walks over, shakes hands, says thanks and it's the end of the show. Would be nice for them to chat tho..

Every Christmas for the past few years, one of Dave's producers has came down to my fiance's mother's house for Christmas dinner. So we spend some together. I'm going to send him an e-mail. I'm pretty sure if I could make it out for the taping, I could get backstage.
Now if He could only send out airfare and cover the hotels that would be great.

Paul & Gord also got to see each other on "Tears Are Not Enough" back in "85".

The song 'Cold Hands From New-York' or 'Hi'way Songs' from yesteryear. But he probably will do a well knowned hit of his... we will see ??

This is just terrific !

come on, Dave could get some good mileage out of the premature death anecdote, lol

i could go for an entire 10 minute interview with GL, mainly cos I can't decide on a tune that would best flatter his current vocal but I'm sure the sound mix will be top notch

i suppose The Wreck would have universal appeal to a primarily American audience

with that said, wonder if they'll play Will it Float?

quite the scoop, jenney...let us know when there's a leak on the song choice!

I bet he'll do something from a more recent album. If he does a song that's been on the radio a billion times we'll have to put up with whole voice issue comments. Not from us, from the non-believers.

Last time I watched Letterman...never! I will make an exception.

I was wondering......how did this happen ? I don't watch Letterman very often. Is it common for him to have an older musical act on ? The musical guests, whether old or new, are usually promoting something new. Seems odd.

My money is on IYCRMM too.

Maybe 'Restless' ?

There's a plain and simple answer to each and every quest
From every quiet dancer who might be a special guest
In a movie made for TV or a late night interview
You might even find them on the "Young and the Restless" too

I have heard David Letterman mention Gordon Lightfoot a few times to Paul Schaffer whenever he would be talking about Canada. He always had positive things to say about 'Our Guy'.

Maybe Dave is a fan ? Gord like Dylan and many others dont do much television esp; Late Night talk shows. Gordon Lightfoot may be starting something new here ???

Conan also did mention Gordon Lightfoot a few times.

Have yet to hear Leno mention Lightfoot.

off day on the monday the 4th to tape the show..

It's odd to me too..no new album to push like some of the 'older' acts still out there.

Maybe Lightfoot did agree to be interviewed before or after the song ?

We Aussies get Letterman on the Ten Network around 11pm Mon-Fri. The USA's Friday Oct8 show will probably be screened here on Monday Oct11, but occasionally the show that's due goes missing without explanation and we get a re-run of a show we saw weeks or months earlier. I've seen Letterman walk out and thank his music-only guests after their performance. He always seems insincere and disinterested unless they're an old household name like Willie Nelson (or Steve Martin playing banjo). I look forward to Lightfoot's appearance and choice of song. It would be great if he was interviewed as well, but I wouldn't bet my house on it.

Not-dead Canadian folk music legend Gordon Lightfoot has been invited to perform on the Late Show with David Letterman, the Ampersand has learned.

Mr. Lightfoot, whose heart continues to pump oxygen and nutrients to the rest of his body, will perform a yet-to-be-decided song at an October 4 taping, which will then air Friday, October 8. Mr. Letterman is not expected to interview the 71-year-old-singer, who still thinks, and therefore is.

A spokesperson for Mr. Lightfoot’s production company, who more than once referred to him in the present tense, said it will be his first appearance on the show.

The stop comes during Mr. Lightfoot’s tour of the United States.
