Still Crazy After All These Years
As the other half of Simon & Garfunkle he brought beauty (of course, he's a Libra!) and grace into the sometimes rough-edged world of folk music and took "folk" to a whole new level and beyond.
As a solo artist he brought humor, pathos and insight into the rock world - he was one of the first mainstream (white-skinned) superstars to support and record what we now call "World Music" when he started exploring the music of South Africa with his album "Graceland" and Brazilian sounds with "Rhythm of the Saints."
The winner of 13 Grammys including the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences Lifetime Achievement Award as well as an inductee (2001) into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Paul Simon was the first recipient (2007) of the Library of Congress's Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.
But hey - despite all the honors and fame, Paul Simon is still crazy after all these years. We love him like a rock. And we're going to play a lot of his music today.
