It’s Back!!! Nasty Bastard Time… meet Art Garfunkle.

Stories about what a nasty, arrogant bastard Art Garfunkle is are legion. But the most obvious one is related by Paul Simon on YES Networks Centerstage. “After Bridge Over Troubled Water came out Art came back from filming Catch 22 and told me ‘this is what we’re gonna do, I’m going to spend half the year filming while you write the songs than I’m gonna come back and we’re gonna record them’ And I said ‘That’s not what we’re gonna do'”
Nasty bastard, right. he hasn’t changed much. Page Six reports today: “No wonder Paul Simon doesn’t get along with Art Garfunkel. At the recent Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 25th anniversary concert, Garfunkel supposedly threw a backstage hissy fit when a staffer couldn’t instantly produce a tissue for his nose. Offered a paper towel, Garfunkel screamed, “I said a tissue!” — and threw it back.”
Big woop, you say? I was leaving this story for last!! I got this from It happened in March of this year…
ART GARFUNKEL has been criticised for allegedly insulting a handicapped fan at a concert.

The singer was reading a poem at a show in New York earlier this month (12Mar09) when he stopped midway through and reportedly berated a disabled person at the front of the audience.

According to an online blog, Garfunkel stopped reading his poem at least twice and then said: “I try to be kind to the handicapped, but I’m trying to put on a show here.”

A fan in a wheelchair was then apparently wheeled out.

And supporters of the singer have lambasted his behaviour, with one person writing online, “He is an arrogant (bleep). I am sorry I did not walk out of the concert.”

The manager of the Turning Stone Resort and Casino has confirmed an incident involving Garfunkel took place at the show.

No more details were available as WENN went to press.
