Happy Simon

1941: Paul Simon is born in Newark, N.J. He teams with boyhood schoolmate Art Garfunkel to form one of pop music’s most successful duos. Simon & Garfunkel’s biggest hit is the million-selling Bridge Over Troubled Water, which tops Chart Toppers’s Hot 100 for six weeks. Their first Grammy comes for the 1968 Record of the Year, Mrs. Robinson. The duo is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
