If you caught Simon & Garfunkel on their last reunion jaunt around 2010, count yourself lucky - as it may well be the last time you'll have seen them play together.

That's purely speculative, of course, but the comments made by Art Garfunkel in an interview over the weekend certainly won't help thaw already-frosty relations between the two songwriters.

Their relationship has been notoriously rocky over the years,  but the singer made some fairly scathing remarks about his former musical partner in an interview with UK newspaper The Sunday Telegraph. 

In it, he described Simon as someone who had "sidelined" him, in the same way that Paul McCartney sidelined George Harrison. "George came up to me at a party once and said “my Paul is to me what your Paul is to you.”," he said. "He meant that psychologically they had the same effect on us. The Pauls sidelined us. I think George felt suppressed by Paul and I think that’s what he saw with me and my Paul. Here’s the truth: McCartney was a helluva music man who gave the band its energy, but he also ran away with a lot of the glory.”

He also said that he had never intended on Simon & Garfunkel splitting after the success of their 1970 album 'Bridge Over Troubled Water', but that he needed a break from Simon. "I want to open up about this," he said. "I don’t want to say any anti Paul Simon things, but it seems very perverse to not enjoy the glory and walk away from it instead. Crazy. What I would have done is take a rest from Paul, because he was getting on my nerves. The jokes had run dry. But a rest of a year was all I needed. I said: ‘I’m not married yet. I want to jump on a BMW motorbike and tour round Europe chasing ladies.’"

Later, he suggested that he had originally befriended Simon when they were children out of pity for his height, saying "that compensation gesture has created a monster" and speculating that Simon suffered from a Naploleon complex - but that he would still be open to another tour with him, nevertheless.

Whether Simon shares his sentiments is another story.
