Bob Dylan and Paul Simon

Alright! It’s my great honor right now to welcome a man to the stage who needs no introduction at all. One of the great songwriters and performers of the modern day. Ladies and gentlemen — Paul Simon!

  1. As a child I still remember walking around the New York city streets my PA and I were always walking somewhere most of the time with a camera back in the day when nobody really cared that the village was full of fruits and everybody was trying to hustle somebody else for money have the great pleasure of meeting Bob Dylan back when he was Robert Zimmerman I had blond hair and blue eyes I can say with 100% accuracy that one picture of Bob Dylan on one of his album covers I took the picture in my backyard the one with the tree branch in the background we used to play a game the game was overhearing people talkin and using the common phrases that were on the street that day to come up with a type of format for a song then writing it down on a small piece of sticky paper like a chewing gum wrapper one of the biggest problems that I had back then was I could not stand people staring at me as I was considered an outcast of society because even to this day when a child is born into the world what do the parents ask the doctor does the child have a brain is he blind is he deaf did he scream when the doctor smacked his ass I also remember Paul Simon from the 59th Street Bridge and feeling groovy but I would have to say my favorite was when he went on Saturday Night Live as a turkey back when comedy was being able to laugh at yourself just a little bit in all actuality the reason that Saturday Night Live came into effect was there was too many kids going out on Saturday night getting drunk and getting into car accidents mind you this was before a beeper and a pager and a cell phone if you could get the kids to laugh and follow the antics of a comedy group on television they wouldn’t want to go out get drunk get into car accidents they’d go home with alcohol and watch TV then again back then television was free you have to stand watching television commercials that hasn’t changed at all but now you’re paying for it somebody still trying to sell you something and you’re paying for it still in enjoy good music whether it be folk music rock and roll Bluegrass Country or actually orchestrated classical music many other types of music have an eclectic taste for it I think the downfall of society was when Tipper Gore and others decided to go in front of Congress and State that certain music and certain musical groups should be banned due to the content of either of their wordage or the beat back when wnew-fm 102.9 was a New York radio station or even back when 77 WABC am dial they all became too repetitive hear the same song 20 times a day it’s like going to the grocery store every 25 minutes display the same track until people get so sick of hearing that song everyday then they did it with MTV and VH1 now they’re trying to do it with media if you’re on a smartphone and you have access 2 News organizations they call it digital media I refuse to subscribe 2A news Corporation if I have to pay in my mind why would I pay somebody to tell me lies information should be free unless the journalists are not journalists anymore just a bunch of opinionated game show hosts what happens to the disclaimer like this is not necessarily the opinion of blah blah blah
