Paul McCartney and Paul Simon

Saturday brunch at Le Bateau Ivre in Berkeley. Boyfriend and I greedily gulping down Spanish pilaf and poached eggs with feta and olives, after two hungry hours at the dentist’s. Suddenly, out of the blue:

“Did you know that Paul McCartney sang to Paul Simon on his 64th birthday?”

I didn’t even know they were friends. Apparently when Paul Simon turned 64, Paul McCartney called him up and sang the entirety of a famous number from his youth – When I’m 64. And then declared that this just had to be done.

Will you still be sending me a valentine Birthday greetings bottle of wine?

Sir Paul himself turned 64 in 2006. I found a YouTube clip of them performing together (audio only). And from the sound of it, it seems like they will continue to need and feed each other for a long time to come.
