Simon, Paul (Simon & Garfunkel)/Expert Profile


Ask A Question

Expertise

I am familiar in answering questions regarding Simon & Garfunkel's childhood years, their recordings and interpretations, and current events of the duo. I am quite knowledgeable of their professional career and the idiosyncrasies in their songs and history. As both Simon and Garfunkel generally shy away from the media, questions regarding their personal dislikes and likes are unanswerable (e.g., favorite dish, favorite movie, etc.).

Experience in the area

Having gained an immediate attraction to their music and lyrics, the subjects of Simon & Garfunkel, Paul Simon, and Art Garfunkel have become one of my areas of great interest and continued curiosity. Over the years of deep interest, I have read several biographies, voluminous amounts of news articles, and many tidbits on the folk duo and of Paul Simon.

Education/Credentials

What do you like about this subject?

I hold a genuine enthusiasm and intellectual attraction to their lyrics and musical artistry - including both their duo and solo recordings. I have listened to and reflected on their songs endlessly (and ad nauseum to my friends).

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Perhaps through this forum, I will have the opportunity to meet Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel individually or together. (Meanwhile, a receipt of a personal letter from them would be adequate.) ^_~
