Paul Simon net worth: Paul Simon is an American singer and songwriter who has a net worth of $45 million dollars. Paul Simon was born on October 13, 1941 in Newark, New Jersey. His interest in music began when he attended Fairfax High School, where he met his friend and future band mate Art Garfunkle. They hit it off and soon began performing at school dances. They were influenced by such people as The Everly Brothers and Woody Guthrie. In 1957 the duo released the song "Hey Schoolgirl" under the pseudonym Tom and Jerry. For the next seven years Paul and Art would go on to write and record over 30 songs, occasionally singing again under that same pseudonym. The duo's first LP was released in October of 1964, and was essentially a flop until their agent dubbed over a track with drums, bass, and electric guitar. Paul moved to England the following year. At the first bar he played, he met his soon-to-be future girlfriend Kathy Chitty, who was the inspiration behind "Kathy's Song". Over the next several years Paul would pursue a solo career, while occasionally reuniting with his old friend for various concerts and shows. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame together in 1965. In 2003 the two reunited once again to receive a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and this reunion led to a U.S. tour. As on 2007, Paul Simon resides in New Canaan, Connecticut, and he still occasionally tours with Art Garfunkle.
