I was very excited to go out to Brooklyn tonight at rush hour for the taping of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
The musical guest was supposed to be Paul Simon. He was also set for an interview.
But now I’m told that Simon has dropped out of the show at the last minute. Since he’s a consummate live performer, one suspects he has COVID or a cold or something that took him out quickly.
What a shame. Simon, as I told you recently, has been recording a new album. I thought he might play a new song. Or one of the dozens of famous ones from “The Sound of Silence” to “American Tune” or really “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”
So we’re sending best wishes to Paul Simon to get well quickly. And Jimmy Kimmel will still feature Jason Bateman and I’m sure have a worthy replacement. His shows all week from Brooklyn have been a lot of fun!
