Kevin Eubanks, Jay Leno's Guitar Player, Disses Kid From Arizona

Last night I stayed up to watch the "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.  Leno asked various members of the audience to perform their own special tricks, i.e. whistling like a bird, clapping hands very fast, etc.  These performers were then judged by three men from the Tonght Show staff.  One of the judges was Kevin Eubanks, guitar player for the Tonight Show band.

 Each judge could award a meal (i.e. a ticket for a free meal at a local restaurant) if they approved of the performance, or withhold a meal if they did not approve.

One 16 year old kid from Arizona was a soccer player.  His trick was to balance a soccer ball on the back of his neck while removing his jersey, without dislodging the soccer ball.  Two of the judges awarded the kid a meal based on his performance.  Not Kevin Eubanks.  He asked the kid, "Did you say you were from Arizona?"  The kid replied, "Yes."

Eubanks then told the kid he awarded "no meal" and began speaking to the kid in Spanish.  It was obvious the grandstanding Eubanks was punishing the kid for his state's stand on illegal immigration.

My conclusions:   Kevin Eubanks is a flaming jackass.
