Rickey Minor to Replace Kevin Eubanks on Tonight


After Kevin Eubanks announced just yesterday he’d be officially leaving Jay Leno as the Tonight Show’s band leader, a replacement has been found. NBC has announced that American Idol’s musical director, Rickey Minor, will take Eubanks’s place on June 7 when Eubanks departs after an eighteen-year run. Meanwhile, we're crossing our fingers that Conan picks Slash to lead the band for his TBS gig. [HR]
