Paul Simon’s six-decade music career has made an incredible impact on the industry. Being the other half of the legendary duo Simon & Garfunkel, Simon has written some of the most iconic, timeless songs of all time. These hits include “Mrs. Robinson,” “America,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” and many more. After Simon & Garfunkel parted ways in 1970, Simon embarked on a solo career and released three highly-acclaimed studio albums. His solo hits released in a span of five years include “Mother and Child Reunion,” “Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard,” “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover,” and “Still Crazy After All These Years.”
Simon is a sixteen-time Grammy Award winner for his solo works and collaborations. In 1990, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his works with Simon & Garfunkel and again in 2001 for his solo career. Moreover, Time has listed Simon as one of the “100 People Who Shaped the World.” Rolling Stone also ranked Simon as number eight on the “100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time.”
