Well Kevin has had enough. Although rumors had been flying, the musician confirmed he is calling it quits from “The Tonight Show.”
“After 18 years, I just need a change of pace and see what else is going on,” Eubanks said. Back in February, NBC confirmed that Eubanks was ready leave.
“But it’s a really difficult decision because this has become my second home, as it has been for the band, and I love the audience and the American people really love the show and it’s been a wonderful experience to be here,” he added.
“It has been a pleasure,” Leno said. “You’ve been a great friend and really supportive. When those jokes die, I gotta look to you man.”
“I thought about this and it wasn’t that difficult,” replied Eubanks. ” After 18 years of playing America in to commercials, I’m gonna go somewhere where I can finish a song.”
