The Art-Paul connection

"Art Garfunkel on Paul Simon: 'I created a monster'"

"I want to open up about this. I don’t want to say any anti Paul Simon things, but it seems very perverse to not enjoy the glory and walk away from it instead. Crazy."

... I would also add “eccentric”. Take his habit of listing on his website every book he has ever read. “You notice it’s heavy sh*t,’ he says. ‘It’s not fluff.”

Do you think that Simon and Garfunkel are going to tour again?
Yes.

It does seem like you guys are friends again. I saw photos of the two of you at a baseball game just a few years back.
We are indescribable. You'll never capture it. It's an ingrown, deep friendship. Yes, there is deep love in there. But there's also shit. Put that down.

“And that compensation gesture has created a monster. End of interview.”

The piece reminds me how challenging celebrity interviews can be to do well. I don't think it's always compelling for journalists to insert themselves into their articles the way this one does. It can be a newbie mistake. But it's well done in this instance and defensible.
