(AP file photo/Tina Fineberg.)Bedford’s most famous band leader, Paul Shaffer, recently served as sidekick to someone other than North Salem resident David Letterman.

The sidekick with the most distinctive one-syllable laugh on late-night (“Haaaaaaa!”) pitched in for the solo album of former Kiss drummer Peter Criss.

With fellow CBS Orchestra musician Will Lee on bass guitar, Shaffer plays keyboards on “One for All,” an album of break-up songs that hit stores Tuesday.

Hopefully it’s more entertaining than Gene Simmons’ snoozer of a reality show, “Family Jewels.”
