    I looked for Paul Simon's 1986 appearance with Ladysmith Black Mambazo doing "Diamonds On The Soles Of Your Shoes" on SNL on the net and it is not there. That was my favorite musical performance ever on the show. I can still remember where I saw it and how amazed I was. Luckily, I did see the Graceland tour at Berkeley Community Theater the next year with Ladysmith (the only time I can recall going early in the morning to queue for tickets to a show.)

    May Joseph rest in peace.

      I’m friends with some of the guys in Paul’s band. Joseph was very beloved by all who knew him. They are very broken up by his passing.
