Paul Frederic Simon is best known for his success as part of the duo Simon & Garfunkel, formed in 1964 with musical partner Art Garfunkel. It has been stated that Simon wrote nearly all of the duo’s songs, including three which reached Number 1 on the U.S. singles charts: “Mrs. Robinson“, and “Bridge over Troubled Water” and my favorite “The Sound of Silence“. At the height of their popularity, Simon & Garfunkel split ways in 1970. Simon then began writing as a solo artist.

In an interview, Garfunkel commented on the subject of recording with Paul Simon again.  Garfunkel said, “You’ll have to ask him, it takes two to tango…I like to tango, so count me in. You’ll just have to bring a psychiatrist in as the third member.”

When Simon was asked the same question, he said, “There are a couple of issues. One, Art has some problem with his vocal chords and he can’t sing in his mid range…So it’s really a moot point unless he can sing. From my own perspective, I would just as soon not go back and visit the past.”
