They also released a single called Hey Schoolgirl under the name Tom and Jerry which saw a modicum of success, but after the poor reception of their debut, Simon and Garfunkel album Wednesday Morning 3 am, the duo disbanded, only to reunite a year later when a remix of the track The Sound of Silence achieved chart success. Plagued by personal issues and artistic differences, the duo finally parted ways four albums later in 1970, with 10
Grammy Awards to their credit. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll
Hall Of Fame in 1990.
