Conan O’Brien and his former bandleader are together again.
O’Brien reunited with Max Weinberg on Tuesday’s episode of his TBS late-night series. The two previously worked together from 1993 until 2010 on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “The Tonight Show.”
Weinberg filled in for O’Brien’s usual drummer, James Wormworth, with Wormworth seen falling down an abandoned mine in a pre-taped bit.
“We need a drummer, now!” O’Brien said.
“Well, I can play drums,” Weinberg -- sitting in the audience -- responded.
So O’Brien invited his old friend down and the pair hugged, and Weinberg slid behind the drums, pounding away as if he’d never left.
