Paul Simon is an American musician, singer songwriter and actor. Simon’s fame and commercial success began as part of Simon and Garfunkel, formed in 1964 with partner Art Garfunkel. Simon wrote the majority of the duo’s songs, including three that reached No 1 on the US singles charts: “The Sound of Silence”, “Mrs. Robinson” and “Bridge over Troubled Water”. The pair split up in 1970 at the height of their popularity and Simon began a successful solo career as a guitarist and singer songwriter, recording three highly acclaimed albums over the next five years. Simon also wrote and starred in the film One Trick Pony (1980) and co-wrote the Broadway musical The Capeman (1998) with the poet Derek Walcott. Simon has earned twelve Grammys for his solo and collaborative work, including a Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2001, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 2006 was selected as one of the “100 People Who Shaped the World” by Time magazine. In 2011, Rolling Stone magazine named Simon as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists and in 2015 they named him as one of The 100 Greatest Songwriters. Among many other honors, Simon was the first recipient of the Library of Congress’s Gershwin Prize for Popular Song in 2007. In 1986, Simon was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music, where he currently serves on the Board of Trustees.
