Kevin Eubanks to Leave the Tonight Show After Eighteen Years

Kevin Eubanks moved from his normal spot on the Tonight Show stage tonight and took a seat next to Jay Leno to make a big announcement — he's leaving the chin's side after eighteen years. He says he's going to do "other things," spend some time with his family, and play guitar without being interrupted by commercials. Eubanks, who was always more likable than Leno, will be remembered as the least discerning chuckler in the history of the world. Good luck finding a replacement, Jay.
