When I was a teenager living in Iran, we would be glued to American TV broadcast to see what new hits were being broadcasted from the United States. Among all time favorites in our home were Sonny and Cher, Tom Jones and Neil Diamond.
As kids we thought it was hilarious that women would throw their panties and bras at singers like Neil Diamond. But I guess when you have a silky, smooth voice like he has, it's just a matter of time before you loose all your senses and start to undress in a concert hall filled with other screaming and equally obsessed women. LOL!
Although looks change, Neil Diamonds voice has become even richer than I remember it to be. I would sing along to "Song Sung Blue" and "Sweet Caroline" - always thought he could use one more back up singer - just saying!
Neil is one of the world’s best selling artists with over 125 million albums sold to date! WOW! Add an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as well as the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and you’ve got a real superstar.
Now Neil Diamond is back with an album of new songs, Melody Road, and you can be among the first to listen and share your thoughts with me and your other Neil Diamond fans. Of course you can also check out his new album here:
