Simon and Garfunkel were a phenomena. Paul Simon's lyrics were considered as powerful as Bob Dylan's, and when combined with Art Garfunkel's angelic voice, they were amazing and arguably one of the very best groups of all time. "The Sounds of Silence" were an anthem for the hippie generation, and they were one of the most popular artists of that era. In 2003, they were presented with the "Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award". They won grammy's for "Mrs. Robinson", "Bridge over Troubled Water", and also the album "Bridge over Troubled Water". They were never really rockers, but were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame anyway in 1990.
