Paul breaks down his musical evolution, from the doo-wop he loved as a kid, to the folk music of his teens and early adulthood, all the way to the new music he’s making today at age 80. There are tons of unheard stories and raw moments as Paul remembers how he wrote some of the most famous songs in his catalogue. You'll also hear cameos from artists like Jeff Tweedy and Sting.
