He actually sucks. Graceland is pretty good, but I can't remember him having anything else of note.

How about 'There Goes Rhymin' Simon' and 'Still Crazy After All These Years' with 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover?

No YOU suck. Nothing of note? Now who is lookng for a pissing match? Are you serious?

Two good albums: Graceland and Paul Simon. I've listened to the rest; it's all distinctly average at best, IMO.

I consider English Settlement by XTC to outclass pretty much everything he ever did.

For all the guitar enthusiasts out there, there's a track on Simon's "Hearts & Bones" album called "Allergies", which Al DiMeola is featured on...the work he does on that song is pretty fiery. If you like DiMeola, you would like this song.

One thing Paul Simon can never be accused of hiring topnotch musicians.
Bassist supreme Anthony Jackson,drummer Steve Gadd and on.
I like the odd solo Simon tune here and there.
I wasn't aware that Dimeola played with him.
Intersting,curious too checkout the song you speak of.

The first time I heard that song, I thought to myself "WOW...that has to be Al DiMeola!!!" The song itself is actually a pretty good tune...definitely check it out!

I also liked it when he incorporated Eric Gale (longtime Grover Washington Jr. guitarist that had some good solo stuff...especially an album called "Ginseng Woman") to work with him on "One Trick Pony".

I can't believe Art Garfunkel doesn't have his own page yet on Future Rock Hall for his solo career.

If John Lennon, Lucille Ball, and Paul Simon were to write a song together, the result would be...

What is "I Love Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds On The Sole Of Her Shoes?"

If Richard Harris and Black Sabbath were to come together, the following would result:

What is "Iron Man of La Mancha?"

Correct for $200.

Wasn't this song about a chicken-and-egg breakfast menu offering at a restaurant Simon happened to see?

It wouldn't surprise me if it was!

Jesus, there's some thin skin around here. I like some of Simon's stuff as well, but Liam's entitled to have an opinion without being harassed. If you want to complain, you should gripe with me about Marc Anthony inducting him. What has that man done to deserve to give induction ceremonies? The only association he should have with the Hall is by buying a ticket, just like us. Okay, flame away.
