David Letterman’s Final Farewell Oozed Class.

https://vid.me/e/5w2x

So David Letterman signed off from The Late Show for the final time last night, bringing the curtain down on an illustrious 33 year career as the greatest chat show host that ever lived. I grew up watching Letterman and even though I’m from the other side of the pond I had a fond appreciation for the man’s laid-back, nonplussed approach to being a chat show host.

Of course the final show was an emotional affair and following his farewell the Foo Fighters, (as requested by the man himself), played a live version of Everlong as viewers were treated to a fantastic montage of Letterman’s time spent entertaining the masses.

This is how you do a proper send-off.

N.B. And how’s this for a gesture. Rival chat show host Conan O’Brien urged all of his viewers to change the channel to watch Letterman’s farewell while he was hosting his own show. Classy.
