Late Night with Seth Meyers’ The 8G Band often recruits guest performers from various genres of music to sit in with the house band, and Metal certainly hasn’t been overlooked (for once). Dave Lombardo from Slayer, Danny Carey from Tool, and Brann Dailor from Mastodon are just a few of the names that have brought their sticks to the stage and drummed with The 8G house band, […]
