One for the Road: Happy 70th Birthday, Paul Simon!

Legendary singer-songwriter Paul Simon turns 70 years old today. The man whistled his way into our hearts long ago, and he shows no signs of stopping. He put out a new album, So Beautiful Or So What earlier this year, and he'll release a two-disc set Songwriter on Oct. 24. He's also planning a tour to celebrate the 25-year anniversary of his legendary album Graceland. Our partners at Gothamist have more information on that. Simon is also playing a show at the Rosemont Theatre on Nov. 13. The video above is from Paul Simon's 1977 Saturday Night Live special. Raise a glass to the man who is definitely still crazy after all these years.
