James Taylor + Carly Simon = Ben Taylor

Ben Taylor, 37, is the son of James Taylor and Carly Simon.  Here’s a mash-up of his Father’s Fire in Rain and Mother’s You’re So Vain.


  1. Wow…..amazing. I do believe he has Carly’s mouth. The rest is all James. Thanks for sharing this.


  2. He can’t help but have a good voice.


  3. The gene pool was good to him…

    Not his dad, but talented.


  5. Ohhh, love the funky groove of this piece. There’s definitely something redolent of his father in Ben and his stage presence, but you can see his famous Mama’s genes weighing in as well. Mimi is right–he’s blessed….

    Reblogged this on Living and Lovin and commented:
    His parents were two of my all time favorites, in fact still are and she had Ben and I had Mike, beautiful boys they are with just so much talent inside.


  8. Like the new banner header. I still think, however, that learning and living come before leading… 😀


  9. So much goodie here, David! The lyrics are poetry, and what is that amazing little pad he uses? The next generation of voice box, maybe? I love his scratchy voice—his own, not Mom’s or Dad’s.


  10. born to it – the music and the man, both


  11. I loved the lyrics and loungy tone of his voice. And the cool little synthesizer. JT and Carly are two of my favorites.
