Do you know who are the most popular duo of all time?

Simon & Garfunkel

This is another in the series of tributes to rock and roll heroes of the past and present. Simon & Garfunkel only produced 5 albums together before breaking up in 1971, but they are the sound of the Sixties and will be remembered for many years to come.

Each had a successful solo career and that also is covered in this book.

You will discover:

Introduction: The kickoff for the book and my thoughts on the group.
The Early Years: The boys grew up together and have known each other almost their whole life.
Tom & Jerry: The story of their first recordings as Tom & Jerry.
Taking a Break From Music: Their first breakup (but not their last)
Signing on to Columbia: They finally get a recording contract. Are they stars overnight?
"The Sound of Silence": The story of the song that kicked off two careers.
Then Lightning Struck: They finally get their big break.
“Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme”: Their famous second album.
The Drug Years: It seems most performers go through them. The years of drug abuse.
"Mrs. Robinson": The story behind, perhaps, their most famous song.
"Catch-22": Art Garkunkel becomes an actor.
"The Boxer": Another of their more famous songs.
Female Companionship: Both Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon get married about the same time.
"Bridge Over Troubled Water": Their last and most successful album.
Paul Simon Alone: The start of the solo years after the breakup.
Art Garfunkel Alone: Art must also face being alone with his talent.
“There Goes Rhymin' Simon”: The second solo album by Paul Simon.
Problems at Home: Being a celebrity is hard on the home life.
"My Little Town": A brief reunion of sorts as they record together again.
"Annie Hall": Paul finally gets his chance to act in a movie.
Carrie Fisher: Did you know Paul was married to Carrie Fisher for a short time?
The Central Park Concert: How many attended and why was it the event of the century?
"Graceland": The interesting story behind one of Paul's most famous and popular albums.
In the Years Since: Bringing the guys up to the present.
Legacy of Simon & Garfunkel: Every Legends book has a section on the notable accomplishments of the performer.
Afterword: My closing thoughts.
Selected Discography: A selected reference of the works of the performers.

Meet the Author

James Hoag has always been a big fan of Rock & Roll. Most people graduate from high school and then proceed to "grow up" and go on to more adult types of music. James got stuck at about age 18 and has been an avid fan of popular music ever since. His favorite music is from the Fifties, the origin of Rock & Roll and which was the era in which James grew up. But he likes almost all types of popular music including country music.

After working his entire life as a computer programmer, he is now retired and he decided to share his love of the music and of the performers by writing books that discuss the life and music of the various people who have meant so much to him over the years.

He calls each book a "love letter" to the stars that have enriched our lives so much. These people are truly Legends.
