Letterman Show - Misery performance

Post by wizo1fan »

Hey everyone,
Long time Soul Asylum fan here. I am looking for a copy of Soul Asylum performing on Letterman sometime in the mid 90's when I believe they played Misery. At the end of the performance, Dave Pirner grabbed the trumpet from Paul Schaffer and started playing it which caused a minor scene on stage. Does anyone know where I can find either an audio or video performance of that, or both?
Thank you in advance. Looking forward to the new album!

Not to be a smartass, but seriously, dude... you don't know youtube? There's a world of live footage and other music waiting for you there.

Fair enough. I deserve that. Honestly, I think I searched for it several years ago and didn't find it at that point. As I was digging around SoulAsylum.com yesterday, I thought to myself "hmm, maybe someone here would have that video". I hadn't bothered to search again but I clearly should have.
Oh well. Thank you Alyssa for posting the video anyway!

What the hell is up with Dave's shirt in that video? Did he raid Paul Westerberg's closet or something?

Paul took away the trumpet because of royalty issues, yes?
