Neil Diamond, performing for his 50th year, is an American music icon. He has sold more than 120 million albums and has had 38 Top Ten hits. And who can forget his appearance in the greatest music documentary ever, “The Last Waltz,” directed by Martin Scorsese?
Neil Diamond went to high school with Barbra Streisand. He claims he became a musician as a kid when he was inspired by seeing the legendary Pete Seeger in concert. His first two hits were “Solitary Man,” and “Cherry, Cherry.” “I’m a Believer” went gold in two days and was named Popular Music Song of the Year, in 1966. He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1984 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. His song “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers” was a huge hit for Barbra Streisand, later recorded as a duet. In 2011, he was honored at the Kennedy Center Honors for his body of work.
