9. Paul Simon

Paul Simon wrote pretty much all of Simon & Garfunkel's songs, so fans didn't have to adjust much to get on board with his solo material, which only lacked the high harmonies of Art Garfunkel. Simon's solo years have been very fruitful, yielding many classic songs, like "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover," and albums, like the landmark Graceland.
