Paul Simon - Rare- April Come She Will- BBC Five to Ten series

4

At the 17th Annual GRAMMY Awards (1975), the unlikely power trio of Paul Simon, John Lennon and Andy Williams presented the last award of the night for Record Of The Year. The three teamed up for some surreal but entertaining comedy referring to all of their former partners—Art Garfunkel, Paul McCartney and Claudine Longet—with the former Beatle in particular coming off as simultaneously charming and mocking. Memorably, when an absent Olivia Newton-John won the award for “I Honestly Love You,” Art Garfunkel—wearing a faux tux-T-shirt for the occasion—was chosen to accept on her behalf. “I thought I told you to wait in the car,” Simon quipped. Garfunkel also got in a great jab, asking Simon, “Still writing, Paul?”
