we got along pretty great but I never played the Paul Simon when he was around.
Back in my musician days, whenever the stiff, punker-than-thou, airless musician types got together, knocking Paul Simon was a national passtime for these folks. His main crime appeared to be the fact that Dylan was better and and Iggy Pop was cooler.
I knew immediately I couldn't stand any of these people. Not one of them had a "The Boxer" in them.
