Poor Snoop: Perform on Leno, get arrested

Just musing here: This is weird, seeing Snoop Dogg on Leno last night at the guest performer, the reading today that he was arrested outside the studio after the show for various law infractions.

We only caught a moment of Snoop (mug at left, from www.thesmokinggun.com) anyway, as we'd been over the dial to Letterman to catch The Decembrists, a pretty good act we first heard on a Paste magazine CD. Lot more our type of music compared with anything Snoop does. The good thing is, there is a usually a couple of minutes of lag between the acts on Letterman and the finish of the acts on Leno.

Such as Monday night, when a pretty interesting country-sounding group called The Wreckers, fronted by a couple of pretty girls, were performing on Leno. They too had a sound we'd take over Snoop Dogg.

Leno's show would have been even better if they could have included Snoop's arrest at the end.

By the way, talk about great music guests on late-night TV, you missed a real treat  if you didn't catch Tom Waits on "The Daily Show." Amazing stuff. Waits was the music guest on Letterman on Monday night. Again, that lag time that seems to be worked in between the shows helped to see all of the great Waits and still catch some of the tasty Wreckers.
