Paul Simon not retiring now

from Bodo, 2016-07-28

Well, it seems sometimes Paul Simon is just testing our nerves. While he made some clear statements to NY times in late June that he thinks about retiring - or taking a very long rest at the age of 74 (which would anyway result in retiring, or can we hope for a comeback at 85?), Paul said in a recent interview before the DNC, that he never said that he will retire now.

He just said he was thinking what it would it mean for him to retire, would it changing his perspective and such things. Okay, fine for us. Maybe also some close friends had influence on him, many wrote him letters and called him and said he can not retire. So he didn't... maybe?

Good news for us.

Here is the full interview. (1 hour)


Now lets just hope his voice is still absolute fine and he does not give a *&$%§ on the crazy comments after the performance of Bridge on the DNC.

Top of the Pops at 73

from Brenda, 2015-04-20

Paul Simon top of the pops at 73 after his greatest hits album reaches number one in the charts
Grammy Award-winning artist tops UK album chart for first time in 25 years
Paul Simon, 73, outsold more youthful musicians such as Ed Sheeran
His album The Ultimate Collection includes 19 tracks from a 50-year-career
Simon's recent tour with Sting is thought to have propelled him to top spot Quarter of a century after his last number one, Paul Simon is back at the top of the charts.
The 73-year-old - who rose to fame as part of Simon & Garfunkel - has forged ahead of more youthful musicians to reach number one in the UK album chart with The Ultimate Collection.
His album outsold those by the likes of Ed Sheeran, James Bay and Sam Smith.

Simon's recent tour with Sting (left) is believed to have been the catalyst in helping to propel him to the top of the charts. It is the first time he has reached the top of the album chart since The Rhythm of the Saints in 1990

The greatest hits record includes 19 tracks from Simon’s 50-year career, including Mrs Robinson and The Only Living Boy in New York, from his days recording and performing as Simon & Garfunkel with Art Garfunkel, prior to their break up in the 1970s, and some of his solo hits such as 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.

It marks a return to popularity for the Grammy Award-winning singer, 73, as the first time he has reached the top of the album chart since The Rhythm of the Saints in 1990.
Simon is currently on his On Stage Together world tour with Sting. It is thought the success of the pair’s live shows, which have been met with rave reviews, is what propelled the album to number one.
Simon & Garfunkel broke up spectacularly, and very publicly, in 1970, soon after the release of their album Bridge Over Troubled Water.
