Blessed with a hauntingly clear tenor, Art Garfunkel teamed up with Paul Simon to give voice to an entire generation as part of the folk superduo Simon & Garfunkel. Although Simon was the creative force and songwriting genius behind their classic songs, including "Homeward Bound," "I Am a Rock," "Kathy's Song," "Scarborough Fair/Canticle," "The Boxer," "Cecilia," "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and the unforgettable "Mrs. Robinson" from "The Graduate" (1967), Garfunkel's voice marked their distinctive sound. Although a long-simmering feud helped kill their working relationship as well as real-life, life-long friendship, they won five Grammys, earned a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as well as pop culture immortality. Their 1981 reunion concert in New York's Central Park set all kinds of records and brought about their definitive live album. Garfunkel also earned a Golden Globe nomination for his role opposite Jack Nicholson in Mike Nichols's "Carnal Knowledge" (1971), as he became increasingly interested in segueing into acting. Eventually moving beyond much of their animosity, Simon & Garfunkel reunited several times to great acclaim and enormous profit, and Garfunkel's voice and artistic efforts continued to resonate with multiple generations. Although he left his greatest musical legacy as an interpreter of songs written by Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel helped provide the soundtrack to an era as well as creating his own underrated body of work as a solo artist.
