Homeward Bound: The Life of Paul Simon by Peter Ames CarlinA revelatory account of the life of beloved American music icon, Paul Simon, by the bestselling rock biographer Peter Ames Carlin
To have been alive during the last sixty years is to have lived with the music of Paul Simon. The boy from Queens scored his first hit record in 1957, just months after Elvis Presley ignited the rock era. As the songwriting half of Simon & Garfunkel, his work helped define the youth movement of the 60s. On his own in the 70s, Simon made radio-dominating hits. He kicked off the 80s by reuniting with Garfunkel to perform for half a million New Yorkers in Central Park. Five years later, Simon’s album “Graceland” sold millions and spurred an international political controversy. And it doesn’t stop there.
The grandchild of Jewish immigrants from Hungary, the nearly 75-year-old singer-songwriter has not only sold more than 100 million records, won 15 Grammy awards and been installed into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame twice, but has also animated the meaning—and flexibility—of personal and cultural identity in a rapidly shrinking world.
Simon has also lived one of the most vibrant lives of modern times; a story replete with tales of Carrie Fisher, Leonard Bernstein, Bob Dylan, Woody Allen, Shelley Duvall, Nelson Mandela, the Grateful Dead, drugs, depression, marriage, divorce, and more. A life story with the scope and power of an epic novel, Carlin’s unnamed Paul Simon book is the first major biography of one of the most influential popular artists in American history.
Feelin' grumpy: why Art Garfunkel just can't get along with Paul Simon
Graeme Ross takes his pick of the best. Because Simon is not just a talented wordsmith who sets his poetry to music. Never what you could call prolific, Simon is a meticulous craftsman, a perfectionist for whom quality control is key. Dads, eh! What are they like?
