Neil Diamond is widely regarded as one of the greatest singer/songwriters of all time with a prolific output that has helped provide a soundtrack to the last half-century and earned him his own star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. Diamond was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1941 to Jewish parents. The catalyst for song writing, which he described as his first real interest, was a concert given by Pete Seegar at a summer camp Diamond attended age 16. After working on a short-term $50 a week contract writing songs for Sunbeam Music Publishers, he struggled to make a living until he penned Solitary Man, the first record he released in his own name. In 1965, Sunday and Me and hits for The Monkees, including I’m a Believer; his first Gold Disc, brought greater fame and work as support for any top-line act who wanted him, including The Who. The 1960s closed for Diamond with Sweet Caroline, one of his most well-known songs and he opened the 1970 with Cracklin Rose and Song Sung Blue, by which time he was filling concert venues, as a major artist in his own right. In 1972 he recorded, Hot August Nights, a double album many critics regard as his best, at The Winter Gardens Theatre New York. Hits with Beautiful Noise in 1976 and You Don’t Bring Me Flowers in 1977 followed and in 1980 he starred in a remake of Al Jolson’s, The Jazz Singer, for which he wrote a soundtrack which spawned 3 top singles, Love on the Rocks, Hello Again and America. Diamond continued to record and perform throughout the 1980s and 1990s. In 2008 he became a guest mentor on American Idol and in April 2013, after the Boston Bombing, released Freedom Song. Acoustic Christmas a compilation of new songs by Diamond plus some Christmas classics is available in December 2016. Diamond has been married three times and has two sons and two daughters.
