Simon, Garfunkel finale a benefit



Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel used their final show at Madison Square Garden to benefit the Children's Health Fund, which provides medical care to inner-city kids. On hand were fund head Dr. Irwin Redlener, Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld, Simon's wife, Edie Brickell, Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson, Caroline Kennedy and Ed Schlossberg.

One guy who couldn't make it in from L.A. was Pierre Cossette. The longtime Grammy Awards producer sent Simon a copy of his memoir, Another Day in Showbiz, in which he recalls the priceless tale of how he rejected a song Simon wrote for a television special.

When Simon refused to write a new one, Cossette was fired. Two years later, Bridge Over Troubled Water won just about every Grammy available.
