Sorry to drag you away from your gay porn to defend the thieving Art Garfunkel.

I didn’t think I was defending him, particularly. His behavior is shameful and irresponsible, just not criminal. Yet.

Art Garfunkel was "Jerry" in the rock group Tom & Jerry, whose single Hey! Schoolgirl charted late in the year 1957.

Simon was Jerry not Art. Several things say it was Paul who was Jerry. One is WIKI history showing Simon bio using the last name of a girlfriend. Another is a WIKI search of their last song that is more to the point. The last song they recorded before their break up the day before it actually was "The only living boy in New York".

It starts out "Tom get your plane ride on time. I know you'll part will go fine. Fly down to Mexico da do da da do da here I am the only living boy in New York." Art was leaving to go play a part in a movie trying to launch an acting career in Catch 22.

I've read an account where there were actually many uncredited back ground voices in that song including Bob Dylan.

No Shows for concerts or performances have always been Civil Court matters not criminal ones. It’s been such ever since. No shows have happened quite frequently even among more reliable named preformers. My guess is in this case age and other factors are catching up and he can’t hit the notes. I saw a Youtube video of him singing Bridge over Troubled Water and he got off synch on the verses or parts of them anyway. But I’ve also seen an early video of The Beatles singing Help and they too screwed up. John was singing one verse {wrong one & even the wrong words} and George and Paul were singing another. LOL
