The new issue of Rolling Stone features an in-depth profile of Paul Simon that traces his entire career – from the early days of Simon & Garfunkel through his acclaimed “Graceland” period to the making of his newest LP “So Beautiful or So What.” Here is an excerpt: “One of my deficiencies is my voice sounds sincere,” Simon says. “I’ve tried to sound ironic. I don’t. I can’t. Dylan, everything he sings has two meanings. He’s telling you the truth and making fun of you at the same time. I sound sincere every time. Rock & roll has a lot to do with image. If that’s not your strength, people find fault with the work.”
