Paul Simon: Reunion With Art Garfunkel Won't Happen
Paul Simon's landmark album Graceland is enjoying its 25th anniversary with a host of awesome things -- a Graceland tour and "Under African Skies," a documentary of the making of the album chief among them. One thing that is probably not going to happen however is a new recording from Simon and Garfunkel.
According to NME, Paul Simon has rendered the possibility of a reunion less than likely. Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Today program, Simon says that the same trouble with Art Garfunkel's vocal chords that postponed last year's 13-date tour has also turned the prospect of a reunion a "moot point."
Simon remarked that he would "would just as soon not go back and visit the past." The duo have not completed a record together since 1970's Bridge Over Troubled Water. Even though we are bummed about the receding possibility of a Simon and Garfunkel reunion, we are extremely excited about all this Graceland-related stuff coming up because Graceland was the best thing ever.
