Paul Simon, Edie Brickell charged with domestic violence
NC Advertiser ^ | Apr 28, 2014 | Joshua Fisher

Posted on 04/28/2014 8:02:30 AM PDT by bkopto

Paul Simon and wife Edie Brickell were both arrested and charged with disorderly conduct on Saturday night, April 26, after an apparent domestic dispute, according to New Canaan Police.

A call to police about the incident at the couple’s New Canaan house was made about 8 p.m. Saturday night, police said. But details over what were not immediately released. New Canaan Police hold a weekly press briefing with local media late each Monday morning.

Simon and Brickell, who have been married for more than 20 years, have lived in New Canaan with their three children for years. New Canaan Police did not want to release their address. Neither of their names are listed in the town tax records; but their house is in the northern section of town.

They both were scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday morning at 10 a.m.

The arrest report documents that they were shouting “Betty!” and “Al!” at each other when police arrived.

Brickell, 48, was the lead singer of Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, a late-1980s folk-rock band. Their debut single, “What I Am” was ranked among VH1′s “100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders.”

It wasn't even Edie's band. Label wanted the name change to highlight her.

Edie has been working with Steve Martin lately.

Is it too early to start those rumors?

The argument was whether “What I am” originated with her or with Popeye.

From : http://hollowverse.com/paul-simon/

And though he’s not overly vocal about his views, he isn’t completely out of the game either. He’s a lifelong Democrat, supporting such Democrats through history as Michael Dukakis and Hillary Clinton and, over the years, giving over $49,000 to Democrats and Democrat support organizations.9

He’s been fairly vocal about universal health care, particularly when it comes to health care for children. Simon even appeared and spoke at a press conference alongside some of the country’s highest-ranking Democrats in favor of state-sponsored health care for kids.10

Too bad they couldn’t work in the word “singer” or something, so that we would know who or what they were talking about.

Sometimes the media seems to think that we are all just like their social circle, and already share their personal interests.

From the article: "He is regarded as one of the greatest American songwriters of all time . . ."

Not the greatest. but when you layer the 'Graceland' album on top of his other works, certainly one of the greatest.

Every time Paul Simon comes on the radio I feel as though I might channel John Belushi descending the frat house stairs in Animal House.

Every 80’s song, every single one, is torture because every song has been played to death. Right now the radio at the office where I work is playing Once in a Lifetime by Talking Heads. Who could possibly want to hear that song one more time? Then there’s those mumbling 90’s songs. Why did mumbling become the thing in the 90’s?

Yep, they could be talking about the deceased Illinois senator for all we know. I guess they are so used to dropping political affiliation for democrats, that they forget the identifiers for everybody now . . . except conservatives.
