After a lengthy and career-threatening bout with vocal cord paresis, Art Garfunkel says that his voice is now "96 percent" of where it was in 2010. In a new interview, he speaks optimistically about the possibility of another Simon & Garfunkel tour, but admits there is one obstacle to hurdle: Paul Simon.
He took his time striking out on his own after the conclusion of Simon & Garfunkel's years as a working partnership, but with 'Angel Clare,' Art Garfunkel got his solo career off to a promising start.
We're all classic rock fans here, so we can probably pretty much all agree that the world would be an emptier place without the voice of the guy whose angelic tenor powered 'Bridge Over Troubled Water.' But that's a future that, until relatively recently, we faced thanks to the vocal paralysis that had plagued Art Garfunkel since 2010.
On Aug. 28, Art Garfunkel, one of the most pure voices in rock history, will release 'The Singer,' a 2-CD, 34-song retrospective. The collection includes work from throughout his nearly 50-year career, including Simon & Garfunkel, his acclaimed solo albums and two new recordings.
