The neck of my Guitar
Random Notes December 13, 1979 Rolling Stone

Paul Simon recently wrapped up three weeks of filming in Cleveland for his still-untitled $ 7 million movie about the personal crisis of a fading rock star. Simon and his onscreen band - Richard Tee, Eric Gale, Steve Gadd (all members of the band ´Stuff´) and bassist Tony Levin - had been performing at such local nightspots as the Agora and Fitzpatrick`s, and they capped their stay with a free concert at Baldwin Wallace College, where Simon was joined onstage by John Sebastian and Cleveland songwriter Buzzy Linhart for a three-part-harmony rendition of ´Bye Bye Love´. Then it was off to the Concord Hotel in New York`s Catskill`s, where Simon planned to film performances by the Four Tops, Sly and the Family Stone and a reunited Lovin` Spoonful. (In a later issue, a concert there on December 21 with John Sebastian, Tiny Tim, Sam and Dave plus Paul Simon was announced).

Eclectic casting seems to be the byword - other musicians in the movie are Tiny Tim, Lou Reed and the B-52`s. As Simon told Linhart: ´The reason I thought up this movie was to be in the dressing room to hear the conversation between Sly Stone and Tiny Tim.´
