Läs brevet från Paul Simons representant
Stockholms kulturborgarråd Madeleine Sjöstedt skrev ett brev till Paul Simon när skivbolaget Universal stoppade föreställningen Sound of Silence. Hon skrev bland annat:
"I have noticed your international commitment and social awareness. Therefore, I believe that it must be a mistake to stop a play where your music symbolizes a strive towards democracy and freedom."
Här är svaret från Paul Simons representant Eddie Simon.
Dear Ms. Sjostedt,
As we discussed Universal Publishing does not speak for Mr. Simon in this matter. Universal represents Mr. Simon in routine publishing matters in Sweeden and other countries, but our relationship does not include rights relating to the theatre.
I am confident we can clear this matter up in a few days. We simply require a little time to review the material. I received a DVD of the play only two days ago. I am sorry for the delay, but this is an extremely unusual and important request and now that it has finally reached the proper hands, we will move expeditiously.
