The game is over, over, over, for Paul Simon. No good times, no bad times, no times at all, just interviews with the New York Times. “Showbiz doesn’t hold any interest for me,” the music legend tells the paper, explaining that he expects he’ll soon give up performing for good after his European tour in the fall. “It’s an act of courage to let go,” he says. “I am going to see what happens if I let go. Then I’m going to see, who am I? Or am I just this person that was defined by what I did? And if that’s gone, if you have to make up yourself, who are you?” Meanwhile, Art Garfunkel has concerts scheduled through spring 2017 — he finally wins!
