Paul Simon

Through July 1st

Five decades into his career, Simon hasn't stopped obsessing over his live sound. "I'm constantly [telling my band], 'Too many notes,'" says Simon. "Everybody doesn't have to play all the time, even though they're all very good musicians." Simon is slowly working in new songs, like the haunting "The Werewolf," but there's no shortage of hits. A recent show at Atlanta's Fox Theatre spanned from Simon and Garfunkel classics ("Homeward Bound," "America") to a heavy dose of Graceland. "They want to hear 'You Can Call Me Al,' so I play it," he says. "It's not like I would pick it out because I really want to."
