Simon and Garfunkel live!

The rock and roll hall of fame concert...here they are, singing The Sounds of Silence... "songs that voices never shared"--poets and movers of the soul, "my words like silent raindrops fell" ...to the neon god they made

the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls"

How do they know me so well! what a celebration of music and life and love...present and past and future... crystal clear guitar music and voices of life....we age but their words and music and passion do not....literature....music that makes you cry

Still crazy after all these years!

  1. I saw them on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame concert...nothing short of spectacular. What makes them so great? - They are poets, gifted and so immensely talented that it makes one just shake her head! Look at the difference between their performance and Mick Jagger's at the concert. Not saying Jagger wasn't good...but, he does not have the heart of a poet, like S & G! And in the long run, and it has been a long run...it makes all the difference.
