In the late 50s Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel wanted to be rock and roll stars in the worst way. For some reason they got more than their share of chances. Together or individually they were known as Tom & Jerry, Artie Garr, Tico & the Triumphs and also Jerry Landis.


Tico and the Triumphs were a group Simon and several of his friends formed. "Tico" was Mickey Borack, while Simon kept his stage name of Jerry Landis, and the "Triumphs" included Marty Cooper, Gail Lynn and Howie Beck.
