Simon, Nile + Reed – in the news

3 06 2013

Well, quite a few of our Board Members are in the news these days.  First off here’s a pic of Paul Simon who visited the ARC last week (ignore that other guy).

We had a mint copy of his Jerry Landis early personae release, “The Lone Teen Ranger,” for Paul to peruse. What we didn’t have was his single with Tico and the Triumphs,  (anyone out there have one to donate to the collection?).

He was kind enough to autograph a copy of Graceland for that wall of signed classics behind us in the photo.

Paul was witty and gracious and stayed for over an hour    – a treat for everyone here.

Board member Nile Rodgers is also on our radar as his recent collaboration with Frenchies Daft Punk seems to be top of the charts on every continent.  Congrats.

Now these days YouTube is so commercial-laden that I suggest you have a look at the video on: http://www.youtubeskip.com/watch?v=h5EofwRzit0   By the way, see those space helmets in the video?  Watch for an upcoming feature here on bands in helmets!

Finally a hearty get-well-soon to Lou Reed, recovering from major surgery in Cleveland.  Laurie told us about this a while ago, but we  didn’t mention until story officially released.  Lou send us a pic of you doing yoga!
