Sting Paul Simon Art Garfunkel

Paul Simon and Sting are to go on a joint tour together early next year throughout North America, it has emerged. Eighteen live dates are scheduled from the 8th February 2014 through to the 16th March with additional dates expected to be announced, reports the NY Post.

Sting
Sting Will Soon Embark On A Tour With Paul Simon.

The tour announcement may have come as a surprise to fans of either of the artists but it appears that the pair have been close friends for some time: since they lived in the same New York apartment block years ago. The two artists appeared together in May when they performed acoustic versions of 'The Boxer' and 'Field of Gold' at a benefit for the Robin Hood Foundation. The 72 year-old Simon and Garfunkel singer spoke of that set: "After we finished it we both looked at each other and said: 'Wow. That's pretty interesting.'"

Muscle Shoals? You Know, Home Of The World's Greatest Songs [Trailer + Pictures]


Etta James Rolling Stones Paul Simon Bob Dylan

Located along the Tennessee River is Muscle Shoals - a small town in Alabama and an unlikely breeding ground for some of America's most creative and interesting music. Under the influence of "the singing river" as the Native Americans called it, Muscle Shoals has helped create some of the most important songs of all time.

Mick Jagger considered being a teacher, a politician and a journalist. 'Start Me Up' singer revealed his early career plans during a televised interview. Speaking on the Today programme, The Rolling Stones singer said a career as "a schoolteacher would have been very gratifying". Had the singer gone on to be a teacher he would have kept his families' tradition as both his father and grandfather were teachers.

Under African Skies Review


Excellent
This beautifully assembled documentary traces the creation of Paul Simon's seminal 1986 album Graceland, focussing on the political controversy the recording sessions sparked because South Africa was under a cultural boycott at the time. It's a skilful film that entertains as it reveals something important about history.

In 1985, Simon quietly travelled to South Africa to record tracks for his next album, invited by local musicians. But he and was shocked by racial tension he saw between blacks and whites there, and afterwards was caught off-guard by criticism from anti-Apartheid leaders who said his visit violated the boycott.

Simon argued that he wanted to avoid politics and collaborate with fellow musicians. For them, working with a world-class artist was a chance in a million. And Ladysmith Black Mambazo leader Shabalala says Simon was the first white man he'd ever hugged.

Paul Simon, Graceland 25th Anniversary Edition Album Review


"It was the perfect storm." Whoopi Goldberg's description of Paul Simon's 'Graceland' may be a fondly remembered and heartfelt one but the history of Simon's seminal album was so much more complex than this suggests. There most certainly was a storm, but it was far from perfect, for anyone involved. Like a tornado, 'Graceland' began to gather the debris of political and racial tensions, both in South Africa (under apartheid rule at the time) and in Paul Simon's home of the USA, until eventually, the album was at the eye of the storm.

There is a hidden danger when a new album is released by a long serving musician. Will they stick to their values and success, or will they try and keep up with the times, introducing guest stars/rappers and mess it all up? Ahem, Lionel Ritchie!

Monterey Pop Review


Excellent
For those of us who weren't yet born when the 1960's rock 'n' rolled around, Monterey Pop affords an affectionate glimpse of the music that influenced our parents to be hippies. From Otis Redding to Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin to the Mamas and the Papas, and Jefferson Airplane to The Who, this documentary is jam-packed with contagious energy. But I give fair warning that I will reveal the ending, which does not do the rest of the film the justice it deserves.

Shot in 1969 at an outdoor concert that precluded Woodstock, the film defies the stereotype of the general population at the time. Sure, some have painted their faces and smoke joints, but D.A. Pennebaker (The War Room, Moon Over Broadway) surprisingly chooses to show a broad spectrum of the audience. No matter who is watching, it all comes back to the talented musicians that stir your soul.

Annie Hall Review


Essential
The Woodman's finest hour, in this bittersweet love story between a die-hard New Yorker and a midwestern ditz, about what it really takes to make a relationship (or two or three) work. Woody Allen is at his best as an actor, and Diane Keaton has never had a better role. What makes Annie Hall so much fun, though, is the cameos -- from Paul Simon to Jeff Goldblum's one liner (On the phone: "I forgot my mantra!"), it's a complete send-up of the 70s. Best is Christopher Walken as Annie's psychotic brother.
