Paul Simon, Oct 1981, Bread & Rose Festival, Greek Theater. Berkeley. 13-time Grammy Award Winner. American singer-songwriter, known for his success beginning in 1965 as part of the duo Simon & Garfunkel, with musical partner Art Garfunkel. Simon wrote most of the pair's songs, including three that reached number one on the US singles charts, "The Sounds of Silence", "Mrs. Robinson", and "Bridge Over Troubled Water". In 1970, at the height of their popularity, the duo split, and Simon began a successful solo career, recording three highly-acclaimed albums over the next five years. In 1986, he released "Graceland", an album inspired by South African township music that helped fuel the anti-apartheid movement
