404 – Eric Leiderman: Late night TV’s drum ambassador

Eric Leiderman, producer from Late Night with Seth Meyers has found himself in a unique position. As a drummer, Eric has always juggled touring and working in television only to find himself combining the two…sort of. The band leader for Late Night with Seth Meyers is drummer Fred Armisen, who also has his hands full with many other projects. Leiderman saw this as an opportunity to call upon some of the best drummers in the world to fill in for Fred. This served as a way to both satiate his love for drumming and to honor a continued tradition of drummers being a centerpiece in Late Night television.

Eric Leiderman talks about:

  • Getting into drums as a kid after seeing Tommy Lee
  • How he got started working in TV in LA
  • Touring with Meatloaf, Velvet Revolver and other big acts
  • Making deliberate decisions about family life vs. touring life
  • Staying away from heavy partying in the music and TV industries
  • Inviting the world’s best drummers to “Late Night with Seth Meyers”
  • The process and priorities of producing “Late Night with Seth Meyers”
  • Much more

    Awesome! By the way, each of the guest drummers on Late night leave with a custom bass beater from the great folks at Lowboy Custom beaters!
