Paul Simon may record with Bob Dylan

from Brenda , 2010-06-01

Pauls new album - hopefully released this fall - will maybe have a guest vocal appearance by Bob Dylan. Simon is thinking about asking Bob to sing a duet with him.

Meanwhile Paul Simon also changed his record company and is comming back home to Columbia records. Paul has been at Columbia from the early S&G time till 1980´s One trick pony, and left the company after some disputs.

With some luck this new deal, which combines all of Pauls work at one company now, we might have a chance for some interesting releases of Pauls early career...(?)

S&G tour postponed indefinetly

from Bodo , 2010-06-18

Simon & Garfunkel have postponed their Canadian and U.S. tour, indefinitely. Tour promoter Live Nation says the tour is on hold as Art Garfunkel continues to recover from a vocal paresis (a weakness of one or both vocal folds which can cause hoarseness, shortness of breath and various other problems).

“According to his doctors, Art is expected to make a full recovery, however they cannot predict an exact timeline,” read a statement released Thursday afternoon. “This condition [paresis] inhibits the duo from performing shows at the highest possible level and it is for that reason and out of respect for their fans that Paul and Art have decided to put the tour on hold.”

The tour, originally scheduled for April, had been postponed until July, after Garfunkel experienced vocal problems opening night. The tour was supposed to resume July 3 in Vancouver.

“I do feel bad about disrupting so many people plans but, as I continue to mend, I can’t yet bring my ‘A Game’ to a tour,” read a statement from Garfunkel, “and I would not perform for you with anything less.”

Tickets can be refunded where they were purchased.

Songwriters Hall of fame honour Bridge over troubled water

´I thought, ´Hmm. That´s better than I usually write,´´ Simon recalled. ´I was completely surprised that I wrote it — it was completely unlike anything I had ever done before.´
On last Thursday, Simon´s magical moment — one of several in his long career — was honored by the Songwriters Hall of Fame in a ceremony
