Edie Brickell of the New Bohemians.

Wasn't she in a band "Edie and the New Bohemiens (sp?)"?

Omg he got old. Does Garfinkle look that bad

I always believed the breakup of Simon & Garfunkle as a musical duo also involved the breakup of them as lovers. There was a lot of personal animosity in that breakup that to this day has never been explained publicly. I think Paul Simon's probably bisexual. Same with Garfunkle.

To those mentioning how old he looks, he'll be 70 in October.%0D %0D

by Anonymousreply 805/15/2011

My mother is 70, has gray hair, and looks about 15 years younger than Simon did on SNL.

I don't know if Pinchas Saltzman is gay.

So he's bisexual and in his 70s:


by Anonymousreply 1105/16/2011

Of course he's not gay. I wonder why he "pinged" for the OP. He's a short, cerebral, unprepossessing Jewish guy with a soft-spoken manner; I don't see anything about him that "pings."

by Anonymousreply 1205/16/2011

He may be bi- Art G is definitely bisexual- if not gay. He asked me out many years ago at a large party (brunch, bloody Mary's etc at a large 100 gay party in the early 80s). So I have always assume Art is probably the same. But I don't know.%0D %0D No I did not go out with him.

by Anonymousreply 1305/16/2011

Paul Simon only "pings" for people who are looking to get "pinged". However, having said that, I remember an interview years ago where Paul talked about his breakup with Art. He said they were sharing a house in LA and Art was focusing on his movie career. Paul felt Art was focusing too much on his movie career and, as he put it, was "jealous". I thought it was an interesting word to use, but I think it was just Paul being very honest. They were such close friends for a long time, and the movies came between them. I have no reason to think the relationship was sexual, however.

Was he wearing a hairpiece on SNL? He appeared to be sporting more hair than I've seen him have of late.

I don't think Paul Simon is gay. Now -- those guys in Air Supply, that's another story!

He pings like crazy and always has.

by Anonymousreply 2105/19/2011

I don't know about now, but in the 70's it was sorta street common knowledge that he was gay/bi, or so my mama says.

by Anonymousreply 2205/19/2011

As a sensitive gay kid, I figured S&G's achingly sensitive music must have come from a point of view of the world much like mine. But proof? Nope.

Your gaydar needs some serious maintenance. Simon is a small, soft-spoken, thoughtful Jewish guy. Not gay.

by Anonymousreply 2405/19/2011

I read in his recent biography that his relationship with Garfunkel was always turbulent-since they met in grade school there was a competitive thing going on. But there was also jealousy on Simon's part and it seemed mostly to be an intense, emotional but platonic bromance gone wrong. Break up, make up, break up again. I don't think they were necessarily gay but they certainly were very attached to each other.

by Anonymousreply 2505/19/2011

"He pings like crazy and always has."%0D %0D How exactly does he "ping?" Explain please, because I'd really be interested in knowing what it is about Paul Simon that suggests that he's gay.

by Anonymousreply 2605/19/2011

I didn't even know that this was a rumour! I was only checking to see if he was playing at Glastonbury this year, and it came up with this!

by Anonymousreply 2706/24/2011

He's not gay, people.

I think he is, my friend said his male roommate was fucking Paul around the time of "Still Crazy".

He married Carrie Fisher.

So he must be gay.

This is datalounge. EVERYONE is gay. Someone's cousin's neighbor always got hit on in the 70's.

Paul Simon must be one of the ugliest men in show business. He has always looked downright repulsive.

by Anonymousreply 3206/24/2011

Paul had the same Arayan obsession that Babs portrays in TWWW. Art was his Robert Redford.

by Anonymousreply 3306/24/2011

Yes, because "Garfunkel" is such a WASP name.

There were TWO Jewish boys in Simon and Garfunkel, R33.

by Anonymousreply 3406/24/2011

You can search the world in vain, looking for a comparison of Art Garfunkle to Robert Redford, but you won't find one till you get to Datalounge.

by Anonymousreply 3506/24/2011

Hello boys! My name is John Dick (alias, lol), I have most definetely found evidence of gayness in Paul's lyrics!!!

In the classic, "50 ways to leave your lover", dear Pauli sings in the chorus: "Just slip in the back Jack". - we all know what that mean *

"You don't need to be coy, Roy" - we have all had a modest lover, haven't we? ;-)

"Hop on the bus, Gus, you don't need to discuss much" - many synonymous for the little Simon, right?

Please comment on this one, I have thought it through thoroughly.

love this site by the way! :-)

love, John

On the other hand, there are the lyrics to "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard."

by Anonymousreply 4010/20/2011

I don't know or care about Paul Simon's sexuality, but have no idea why idiots like r12 and r24 think that the qualities they list somehow exclude him from being bisexual. Whatever made him ping for the OP may have been something instinctual and not because he was lisping or had a limp wrist, no doubt the signs that r12 & r24 (likely the same poster) look for.

Can someone explain what the hell the deal is with R36, please?

"I always believed the breakup of Simon & Garfunkle as a musical duo also involved the breakup of them as lovers. There was a lot of personal animosity in that breakup that to this day has never been explained publicly."

What other songwriting duo does this remind you of?

by Anonymousreply 4310/20/2011

carrie fisher said so today as she was sitting in for kathie lee with hoda.

by Anonymousreply 4401/26/2012

Could simply be that Simon is a well-organized and business-oriented music professional and Garfunkel is not. Over 40 years that would def. take them on different paths.

by Anonymousreply 4501/26/2012

These two guys are so Gay! I cannot believe all the comments saying, "No! They are not Gay! They had girl friends. They married. They had children." Gimme a break! One of my closest friends did all that and finally admitted to himself that he was Gay all that time and came out of the closet at 63 years old. He's got 3 kids!

So if I date I woman, that makes me straight? Yikes!


Glad To Be Gay,

R6, Garfunkel looks better than Simon, especially when he has his glasses on and is not wearing his hairpiece.

by Anonymousreply 4703/21/2013

Art Garfunkel with his hairpiece. Why anyone would pay to have such a crappy looking hair piece is beyond me. He definitely looks better without it.

Another picture of Art and his hairpiece. His hair may look like shit, but he's still got that incredible voice and can still hit the high notes.

by Anonymousreply 5503/21/2013

The breakup was over egos. Simon thought he was more important since he wrote the songs. Garfunkle hated having to deal with this. So when movie opportunities came along for Garfunkle, he figured it was time to quit: something which Simon never foresaw coming. Suddenly, Simon was confronted with the possibility that maybe Garfunkle wasn't the lesser talent.

by Anonymousreply 5603/21/2013

My roommate in ptown 15 years ago was 15 years older than me. He came from CT. (Danbury?). He told me that when S&G split it really was a breakup. He said AG used to drink in what passed for a gay bar they frequented . AG told my friend several times that PS had broken his heart. Also I think AG's "My little town" is one of the top 100 pop songs of all time.

I don't think Paul or Art are gay, or had a relationship. Although I do wonder why they've never revealed why the broke up as a musical act. It just seems odd that neither will talk about it.

by Anonymousreply 6003/22/2013


Is Art wearing mascara in that picture? And my god that clown wig ... he looks like a drag queen.

by Anonymousreply 6103/22/2013

I think Art is wearing mascara in the pic at r48. I don't understand the clown wig at all. He looks better without it and without the mascara. Where the hell does one buy a wig like that and if he had it custom made can you imaging what the wig maker thought when they got an order for a orange clown wig.

What's with the orange color? His hair was never that color before. Back in the 70's Art was a nice looking man, its ashame what happened to him. His looks did not hold up at all.

by Anonymousreply 6203/22/2013

So what, he turned into Ed Koch. Everyone gets old. I like him.

by Anonymousreply 6303/22/2013

The piece and make up were for probably for the stage, no?

by Anonymousreply 6403/22/2013

I read a Garfunkle interview once where he basically said at the time he was getting more interested in movies and was getting less involved with the music, and it was causing some additional stress between them. I also think Simon was getting more recognized as a more musical talent due to his writing and Art was just a voice which added to it. At the time they had been performing together for about ten years - since they were in their teens. He said if they would have broken up the act their friendship would have been destroyed.

Saw on DL recently that PS was angry at being left out of 'Catch 22', in which AG had a role.

Mike Nichols had it seems promised PS a small part in the film, which never materialised. More break-up fuel.

My late cousin's late neighbor's late brother got hit on by PS in 1967

by Anonymousreply 6703/22/2013

He is a little old Jewish man. What do you expect him to look like?

His brother Eddie looks so much like him that when you saw him on the street, you'd think, "There goes a guy who has to be Paul Simon's brother."
