Marriage Problems for Paul Simon

Singer Paul Simon and his songbird spouse held hands and faced the music together Monday after they were busted for a spat that got physical at their Connecticut house.

Dressed in a navy blue suit and a green fedora that he took off before taking the stand, Simon admitted to a judge that he and Edie Brickell hit some troubled marital waters, but insisted “both of us are fine together.”

“We’re going to go home and watch our son play baseball,” Simon said in the Norwalk, Conn., courtroom where he and Brickell were arraigned on disorderly conduct charges. “We had an argument, which is atypical of us. Neither of us has any fear, or any reason to be threatened.”

Brickell, dressed in ankle boots and skinny brown jeans and towering over her diminutive husband, chimed in, “He’s no threat to me at all.”

Judge William Wenzel cut the couple a break and declined to issue a protective order on the condition that they behave themselves — and that there are “no acts or threats of violence with respect to either party.”

Then Simon, 72, and Brickell, 47, left the courtroom hand-in-hand. They are due back in court May 16. “Edie and I are fine,” Simon told reporters. “We love each other, we had an argument, that’s all.”

Simon’s lawyer, who tried but failed to get the media barred from the brief proceeding, called the Saturday spat “a minor situation,” but suggested Brickell and her meddling mother bore the brunt of the blame.

“It was a normal husband-and-wife discussion,” Allan Cramer said. “Paul didn't want to discuss it and she did. He tried to leave and she kind of locked the door. I don't think he started the shoving." Alarmed, Brickell’s mom, Mary, called the cops, he said reports Daily News.

When Bob Met Bette

Everyone who knows Bob Dylan prolly remembers his duet with Bette Midler, "Buckets Of Rain," on Midler's 1975 album Songs for the New Depression. It was a song Dylan had included—well, it was more of a a sketch of the song, on his Blood On The Tracks album. Anyway, here's a clip from the Dylan/Midler "Buckets Of Rain" session. The clip is not super revelatory and it's a bit of a mess, but ...

The Write Stuff: Tips on Writing One- or Two-Chord Songs

A song containing a few as one or two chords can be just as well-crafted as a far more intricate composition. Of course, the world is full of guitarists who play a D-to-G strum pattern ad infinitum, rhyme “fire” with “desire” and declare that they’ve written a song. You goal as a songwriter is to not be that person. The Who kept their two-chord masterpiece “My Generation” interesting by changing keys every couple of verses. The same trick rescu ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
