Here's John Lennon and Paul Simon presenting awards for best pop song (not sure of the year, probably 78 or 79?).  Introduced by Andy Williams (with whom they kid for a minute or two)!

John is being a good boy, going along with the scripted jokes, and perhaps ad-libbing a couple of times -- though no doubt he was high as a kite at the time.

And then Art Garfunkel shows up... wow... you think John and Paul (McCartney) didn't get along in the last years of the '60s, neither did Paul and Art, though unlike John and Paul, Paul and Art did work together on occasion even after the break-up. BTW, nice shirt, Art.

I think the Paul and Art breakup has been exaggerated.  They had more of a sense of humor than that.  There was a famous SNL show back in 1975 where the two of them reunite for the first time in public.  Art is the SNL host that night, and Paul comes out of the audience and joins him on stage.  When the applause dies down, Art takes a long pause, then says with a dry straight face:  "So you decided to come crawling back, eh?"

And Paul and Art have been doing lots of stuff together, concerts in the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s.

Speaking of great SNL shows, the one that featured Paul Simon and George Harrison doing "Here Comes The Sun" was especially special.

 

Yet they've never fully reunited for long-term. Probably pretty smart on their part. I'vve just always heard/read that it got pretty bad between them in the last year or two together, but then again I don't know my Simon and Garfunkel history at all, so I'll just shut up now.

I do remember seeing the Simon/Harrison show, with them playing "Here Comes The Sun" and George's 2 music videos for 33 1/3. I believe that was also the same show Simon sang "Still Crazy After All These Years" in a turkey suit.

From that same show...

 

There is so much to love in this rehearsal audio from that show. Listen to George warming up in the beginning. Damn he was funny.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I domt think John and Paul couldnt do it any more just needed a break. They wanted to I heard a Story from Art where John asks should I write with my Paul, how was it writing with your Paul again. Art said do it. John was suppose to go to New Orleans to work on Venus And Mars. After the fued died there egos were in the way. Paul showed up many times at Johns house around 76-77 with a guitar but John had baby Sean. Jack Douglas said that John was obsessed during DF session on getting the boys back together for Ringos album. Ringos late 70s albums tarnished his name and he wanted to help his friend. My guess that Ringo would of been an excuse to put there egos aside and right a song for Ringo and move from there. What could of been John was suppose to start working with Ringo in January '81.
