PAUL SHAFFER & THE WORLD’S MOST DANGEROUS BAND
Already renowned as the keyboardist in the “Saturday Night Live” house band, Paul Shaffer formed what soon became dubbed The World’s Most Dangerous Band back in 1982 and, for over three decades, they ruled the late night landscape as David Letterman's musical foils. After a 24-year gap since their Todd Rundgren-produced debut, the eponymous PAUL SHAFFER & THE WORLD’S MOST DANGEROUS BAND features appearances by an all-star lineup including guest vocalists Dion, Jenny Lewis, Bill Murray, Darius Rucker, Shaggy and Valerie Simpson. Executive produced by Seymour Stein, the new Sire Records collection was helmed by legendary hitmaker Richard Gottehrer, whose career stretches back to the 1960s Brill Building era (and whose song “Sorrow” is included here as a tribute to David Bowie).
