So what else is new? This guys career started fading in 1973. Usually when small white men start using African rhythm's they are out of ideas. For proof, see Phil Collins. In Simon's case, this started with Graceland, a couple of decades ago.

Paul Simon's talent and lyrics will never fade. He simply is too melodious and his lyrics too meaningful to be appreciated in the era of rap and other crap.
