Simon and Garfunkel were an American popular music duo
comprising Paul Simon and Arthur "Art" Garfunkel. They met in
grade school in 1953. They formed the group Tom and Jerry in 1957, and
had their first taste of success with the minor hit "Hey
Schoolgirl." As Simon and Garfunkel, the duo rose to fame in 1965
backed by the hit single "The Sound of Silence." They have
reunited on several occasions since their 1970 break-up, most famously
for 1981's The Concert in Central Park, which attracted 500,000 people.
