The Rock-itt : July 2012
Singer/songwriter Paul Simon has dropped a bombshell which will decimated millions of Simon and Garfunkle fans worldwide. Simon said that he would rather move into the future with new m usic rather than stay anchored in the past. A problem with Garfunkel’s vocal chords had left him unable to sing in his mid-range, making the question a ‘moot point’, he added. His comments, made during an interview with BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme, will be a disappointment for fans who had hoped the legendary duo would re-unite. Personally I applaud Paul Simon for his stand here, in doing what he wants to do and move on with something new and refreshing which we all know he is capable of doing. We still have all of their old recordings if we want a journey down mem ory lane and I’m sure tribute artists would certainly do the pair justice.

The former Beatle said he would be "closing the opening of the games" Dubbed ‘The Isles of Wonder’, the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics will be held on July27. England is definitely the place to be this year, there is so much happening over in the old dart, I ’m envious. Impersonator Jimmy Fallon Celebrity impersonator, Jimmy Fallon, released his second album, ‘Blow Your Pants Off’ on June 12. His first 2002 comedy record ‘The Bathroom Wall’ was a mix of songs and stand up performances. The new recording however, is more on song parodies and team-ups with high- profile rock stars from his gig hosting ‘Late Night’ on NBC. This new offering will differ greatly from his first 2002 recording and includes Fallon's impressions of Neil Young, David Bowie, Jim Morrison and Bob Dylan, as well as guest performances by Justin Timberlake, Eddie Vedder, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Big and Rich, Stephen Colbert, Brian Williams as well as Dave Matthews. This should be a cracker and I am looking forward to having it in my possession shortly. Get ready for the Aussie ‘Summer and Sound Wave’ 2013 Simon and Garfunkle will not be collaborating musically again Paul McCartney With the ‘Sound Wave Festival’ taking over as the premier summer music show here in Oz, organisers are desperately trying to keep who will be onstage for the event next year under wraps. Apparently punters out there are getting inside information who is on the bill and are passing it on through Facebook and Twitter. This is the scuttlebutt that is circulating at the moment.... No! Sorry folks, you’ll have to wait till next issue to find out. When you know who is on the show, you will be stoked.
