Paul Simon is 72 years young and in a recent chat with VH1 Radio, the singer-songwriter shared some of his earliest musical influences and inspirations.
"The first music that I fell in love with was rock 'n' roll and doo-wop and then the mixture of country and rock that was rockabilly that was The Everly Brothers and Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly," he said. "So that was the first music that I listened to and that was the first music that I played."
He has some impressive influences and is no doubt a key influence on a new batch of singer/songwriters and musicians.
