Paul Simon not retiring now


from Bodo, 2016-07-28
18:16:17

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)

/episode/all/cMybDhSzsFf7mW/gzvxqz.1-1.html

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.

UK tour planned for later in 2016 - Paul appears on BBC Radio 2


from Matthew, 2016-04-21
16:08:58

Paul Simon appeared on BBC Radio 2 this morning to talk to Ken Bruce where he revealed he will tour the UK in Autumn (Fall) 2016.

He discussed the songs Wristband and Insomniac's Lullaby from the forthcoming Stranger to Stranger album. Both were played including the radio debut for the latter.

As well as recalling his time in the UK in the 60s, Paul talked about how this album is an accumulation of all he has learned throughout his career.

Ken's last question was: "Are you going to tour the UK?" to which Paul confirmed he would do in the Autumn (Fall) after his US tour saying he hoped the album would last until then.
