Paul Simon:
The Lost Intervew

In honor of Paul Simon’s 69th birthday today, Milling About host Robin Milling unspools a never-before-aired 1986 interview with the pop-music legend, which was conducted at Manhattan’s storied Brill Building. Discussing his inspiration for the titled track of his Graceland album, Paul said, “All the music that I do comes from some place that I’m not aware of. I don’t start out and say I’m going to write a song about this subject or, with this point. I don’t have any preconceived notions about what I’m going to write about. So, the songs emerge. Seldom do they sort of pop. They’ sort of slowly reveal themselves.” Listen now.
