The Truth About Graceland

post of the effing week, if not the year

here’s to them muckrakers over at jambase, huh? ‘can’t wait for the first Paul apologist who chimes in with admonishments that, shucks, we all know that Rhythm of the Saints was the real shit, anyway.

    Not to defend Paul Simon – I really dislike the music of Simon and Garfunkel, honestly – but I’m not sure some claims made by members of Los Lobos are going to convince me that Paul Simon is any more cagey, clueless, backbiting, competitive, and self-absorbed than most musicians and performers, especially those who have experienced some level of financial success.

    minx, You mean like Robbie Robertson?

    Nice pic choice, Pat. It really nails his crappiness, I think.

  3. Kyle Says:

    Barry, you still up for Graceland as your desert island disc?

  4. Kyle Says:

    Is that Tilda Swinton behind Simon?

  5. Barry Says:

    No, Kyle, this changes everything. I’m going back to the ol’ standby: disc 3 of 5/26/1973 Kezar stadium.

    (remember our huddle last may?)
