“I don’t know when I will see Dave again”, Waits wrote on his website. “I guess from now on we’ll have to settle for bumping into each other at parties”. Waits’ first appearance on the Late Show was on December 21, 1983 when the show was on NBC. Waits would show up 9 more times.
David Letterman’s final night as host of the Late Show is next Wednesday, May 20. Stephen Colbert will take over.

(Don’t mind Clooney. He had handcuffed himself to Dave earlier on in the show, protesting Dave’s leaving.)
