Paul Simon: I won’t record with Garfunkel again

Paul Simon will never record with former partner Art Garfunkel again because he does not want to “go back and visit the past”.

The singer-songwriter does not want to re-visit his musical history and would instead prefer to get on with “quietly making new music”, he said.

A problem with Garfunkel’s vocal chords had left him unable to sing in his mid-range, making the question a “moot point”, he added.

His comments, made during an interview with BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme, will be a disappointment for fans who had hoped the Sound of Silence duo would reunite to record again.

The pair have already have bestselling albums including their last studio venture Bridge over Troubled Water, released in 1970 shortly before they split.

The record, which was delayed due to disputes between the two artists, went on to win five Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year.
