Singing Sibling Rivals

Sibling rivalry is tough enough to deal with, but what's a father to do when it seems almost to cross generations he has created? Such is the dilemma of singer Paul Simon, father of Harper Simon, 36, (with first wife, Peggy Harper) and Adrian Simon, 15, (one of three with third wife, Edie Brickell).

Coincidentally or not, just as the elder Harper prepares for his debut album to drop October 13 comes news that teen Simon is getting his debut out and online in September ... which turns out not to be news since it has been quietly available for months.

How is father Simon going to deal with the competition? No word yet, but it can be expected somehow that the angst and pride will work its way into some new songs.
