Old friend

Paul Simon turns 66 today.

Can you think of anyone else who has released such amazing and relevant albums in five different decades? Me either.

My faves, by decade:

'60s: Bookends
'70s: Bridge over Troubled Water (by an eyelash over Rhymin' Simon)
'80s: Graceland, but One-Trick Pony and Hearts and Bones are too often overlooked
'90s: Rhythm of the Saints
'00s: Surprise (I think it's his second-best album!)

There's no doubt in my mind that he could release another great one in a sixth decade, too...

And Edie Brickell is what -- 39ish? What has she done lately?
