Paul Simon hints at retirement but not during concert

NEW YORK (AP) -

  NEW YORK (AP) -- If Paul Simon is serious about calling it quits, he didn't let on to a hometown crowd.


   The first of Simon's two concerts in his native Queens, the conclusion of the singer's North American tour, took on an added resonance when he mused to The New York Times in an interview this week that he may be nearing retirement. Simon turns 75 in October.


   Simon didn't address the subject Thursday in a two-hour show at Forest Hills Stadium. With nearly 60 years of music to choose from, Simon's heart -- and much of his song selection -- seemed to be in the period of multicultural exploration from his "Graceland" album on.
