Here’s to you, Mr. Simon. One half of the folk/rock duo, Simon and Garfunkel, Paul Simon, turns 70 day! I was lucky enough not only to see Simon and Garfunkel in concert a few years ago, but it was part of a 2 night concert for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 25th anniversary and the list of performers included everyone from Crosby Stills and Nash to U2 to Aretha Franklin to Metallica to Stevie Wonder! EPIC! Oh, and Paul Simon also did a solo set that night too so I can officially say I’ve heard “You Can Call Me Al,” performed live!
Also born today: comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and comedian Lenny Bruce.
