When Paul Simon walks on stage at Glastonbury on Sunday - the highlight of a rare UK tour - it will be a far cry from his first gigs in England.

In 1965, the unknown singer-songwriter, aged 24, moved to London to perform in folk clubs, earning £3 for his first job.

"It was a big adventure for me - I used to go take my guitar, get on a train and go to wherever I was going by myself," he recalls.

Great singer along with Art Garfunkel, and a brilliant songwriter.

And, unlike some of the 'modern' bands today, he doesn't feel the need to try to impress by swearing or being smutty.

A true artist. Cool
