I forgot to post about this when I saw it the other night… well, quite a few nights ago.
Charlie Rose interviewing Letterman after the Kennedy Honors. One of the better interviews I’ve seen on television in a long time.
Here’s a link to the full 32 minutes on Charlie Rose’s website.
I often think Letterman is an asshole, and maybe he is, but this interview really offers some insight into what he’s achieved and how hard he has worked (and still works). He also talks about being an asshole, and maybe trying to be less of one.
This interview was aired with an interview of Led Zepplin (I guess also part of the Kennedy Center Honors). What should have been much more interesting was, well, not really very interesting at all.
