New Album!

from Danny C, 2018-12-28

Well, he calls it a new album, but its everything that us diehard fans want! The album is called "Alternate Tunings" and it's an album of unreleased versions of his older songs. I have a copy of 6 tracks from the album. It's the only confirmed songs that I know of

-Song For The Asking
-Papa Hobo
-Learn How To Fall
-Silent Eyes
-Hearts and Bones
-Citizens of the Planet

It's very exciting and the tracks that i've heard are magnificent.

And he blew Bend Oregon away

from Robert , 2017-06-26

The best concert I have ever been. Thank you Paul and all who surround you with love, care and the energy to inspire us so. Thanks also to the attendees for appreciating and participating in the concert. We danced, we sang and many of us were ecstatic. I do believe I saw Paul crying with tears of joy, I and others surely were.
I grew up in Queens and in 1966 I brought my first stereo and a copy of “Sounds of Silence”. I was still living in Queens but working in Manhattan and spending time there. I played that album until I wore it out. I wanted to see Paul Simon many times but...
The concert so moved me, I took off my priced button “Oregon Loves New York” and put it on the stage for Paul. The button was from a trip in September of 2001 when our mayor led 800 Oregonians to New York City to show our support.
One interesting note. For half the concert the crowd control people would only let the first row folks dance in the area directly in front of the band. You had to have a special bracelet. Then Paul sang a song about the need for special bracelet to get in places and after that we were allowed up front. Thanks again Paul!

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.

from Matthew, 2016-04-21

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.
