I love this passage from the liner notes:
At the opening press conference for the "Old Friends" tour at New York's Bottom Line, Paul Simon suggested that the reunion was meant first and foremost for the generation that embraced these songs as their own. "The first thing that I think of is what's the dialogue going to be between the audience and the both of us," Simon explained. "There's a tremendous emotional undercurrent because decades of our lives have passed. That is what I'm sort of interested in and curious about--not that I'm not thinking about newer fans, but I'm mostly thinking about reconnecting to the people who knew us in their lives when we were young."
That's me. Paul and Art are now 61 years old, and I'm 49.
