He subsequently joined the Saturday Night Live band before becoming the musical director for the Late Night with David Letterman in 1982. His work with the band and his banter with Letterman made Shaffer a celebrity, and he stuck with the show for decades. He also provided musical direction for movies, released solo albums, published a memoir, and even hosted the VH1 game show Cover Wars.
