It’s not that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Paul Simon[/lastfm] is a poor guitar player – far from it.  But even now he rarely plays on his own recordings.  He’s in today’s Top 5 @ 5 with a #1 song.

    Where’d this info come from? He’s always credited on his Lps for playing guitar and every time I see him live he plays as well.
    Paul Simon is a terrific guitarist and one of the most under- rated of his time.

      The information came from the interview clip of Paul. I’ve always considered him a good guitarist too, and I also understand how painful calcium buildup can be in playing. Who to believe…….I have to go with the audio statement he made. Appreciate the comment Mary.

        the interview (and calcium deposits) were from the early ’80s IIRC. He’s long been over that.
