Howard Stern loves Steve Martin. However, he can’t stand Steve Martin’s years long foray into bluegrass, or as the radio host calls it, “banjo music.” And he made his feelings abundantly clear last night when he visited Late Show with David Letterman.
“I’m watching this guy and I’m thinking Steve Martin must be the most important talk show guest of all time,” he told the Late Show audience last night. “He’s on here. Dave is talking with him, and then [Steve] says, ‘Dave, I’m going to come out and play banjo music.’ And he’s not even playing. He’s bringing two bums with him. I never heard of these guys. I’m going, ‘Dave hates banjo music, the whole show hates banjo music, all of America hates banjo music and so this guy Steve Martin must have something on Dave that he gets Dave to devote an entire segment to banjo music!’”
Stern, of course, had much more to say. And you can check it out below.
