Evoking memories of the clip for Paul Simon's You Can Call Me Al, where Chevy Chase towered over the singer and mimed the lyrics to his song, Sting is a full head taller than Simon as they stroll on to the Hope Estate stage. But that's where the comparison ends. No one can steal Simon's thunder, not even when he scripts it. The man, small of stature and of few words, pens and delivers lyrics with a quiet earnestness that commands attention. In Simon and Garfunkel, the haunting beauty of the harmonies and the considered accompanying musicianship transformed simple, heartfelt folk songs into a soundtrack for many a fan's life. This was the case for Sting, who told the crowd: "I'm sure I'm not the only one to have Paul Simon as a soundtrack to their life."
