Simon appears as a guest on Conan to celebrate the show’s week-long tribute to George Harrison. He talks about his friendship with Harrison, performing with him on Saturday Night Live in 1976, Harrison’s love of ukuleles, and messing with Ringo Starr.
He was an extraordinary guy, as everybody — everybody knows that. Amazing person, not just as a musician, but really very, very open, kind, not — you know, just a certain percentage of him Beatles, and the rest just regular, interested in life, interested in the world, interested in the mind. Really a pleasure to hang out with him.
Simon and wife, Edie Brickell get into an argument. Simon calls 911 but hangs up before the dispatcher can answer. However, this makes police go to the house. According to the police, Brickell smells of alcohol and has a bruise on her wrist while Simon has a cut on his ear. Both are arrested for disorderly conduct.
Simon performs Love Is Eternal Sacred Light during Conan’s week-long residence in New York City’s Beacon Theatre. The track comes from his latest album, So Beautiful Or So What. O’Brien plays guitar in the performance.

Less than one week after they both get arrested on a domestic charge, Simon and wife release a new love duet together. Brickell posts the song, ‘Like to get to know you’ on her Soundcloud page. The lyrics go like this:
You see my face every night, every day but I swear you don’t see me at all. I wouldn’t trade places with anyone….because I’d like to get to know you again.
