The sad news is that Neil Diamond announced his retirement and his cancellation of his Australia & NZ tour due to parkinsons. All we can say is we wish Neil all the best and our thought go out to his family. We have all his memories wrapped up into vinyl records,Tapes, CD’s, DVD’s and on-line streaming. Thank you for giving us the pleasure of joining you on your magical journey over the last 50 years.
Artist come and Artist go longevity is the key with Neil diamond. If you don’t listen to people who cringe at your music and keep selling out arenas you have to be doing something right. Throughout my life there would never be a day were I did not hear Niel Diamond on the radio. I would also turn on the TV to see a Neil Diamond Special. To me he is a gentleman a true artist. Niel Diamond was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1984 and into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.
I remember when Sweet Caroline would come on the radio you had to sing along to it.
All the best and stay possessive.
