Simon & Garfunkel Wanted To Join Crosby, Stills, & Nash
Art Garfunkel revealed that at one point towards the end of Simon & Garfunkel's career, the duo considered joining Crosby, Stills, & Nash. Garfunkel, who after a three-year layoff after blowing out his vocal cords, played his first show since his recovery on Saturday night (August 11th) in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
Garfunkel recalls how back in 1969 two of rock's biggest acts briefly tossed around the idea of becoming one massive super-group: "There was once talk about Nash, Crosby, Stills, Simon & Garfunkel as a quintet in the very beginning of that threesome, in their formation. They were all friends of ours -- although I didn't know (Stephen) Stills that well. And we all respected each other's studio chops. They came through New York to show us their trio, it had just been born, and I remember the distinct sense of 'If you want to call this a quintet and make a record -- count us in, we would love to be Simon & Garfunkel, as well.' I got that feeling."
