Paul Simon Says That He And Art Garfunkel No Longer Talk

(Radio.com) In a Rolling Stone interview discussing about his new album and tour, Paul Simon mentioned that he no longer talks to his former duo-mate, Art Garfunkel.

Simon's upcoming tour wraps up at Forrest Hills tennis stadium in Queens, New York. "It's the first big concert venue we ever played. It was also where the final Simon and Garfunkel [show] took place before the reunions that came many years later."

But what are the odds of the two getting back together? "Out of the question," he said. "We don't even talk." Of course, the duo have reunited after falling out in the past: since the duo split up in 1970, they performed a famous one-off concert at New York's Central Park in 1980 among other one-off shows. They also did a full tour in 1993 and again in 2003-2004.

They did a brief string of dates in 2009 that was supposed to lead to another full tour, but that tour was cancelled due to Garfunkel having issues with his vocal chords. Read more here.
