I was very excited to be out in Brooklyn tonight at rush hour for the taping of “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.
The musical guest was to be Paul Simon. He was also set for an interview.
But now I’m told that Simon dropped out of the show at the last minute. Since he’s an accomplished stage performer, it’s suspected that he has COVID or a cold or something that brought him out quickly.
That’s a shame. Simon, as I told you recently, is recording a new album. I thought he might play a new song. Or one of dozens of famous ones from “The Sound of Silence” to “American Tune” or really “Bridge Over Troubled Water”.
We therefore send our best wishes to Paul Simon for a speedy recovery. And Jimmy Kimmel will still star Jason Bateman and I’m sure I have a worthy replacement. His shows all week from Brooklyn were a lot of fun!
