Neil Diamond

I just had the misfortune to hear Neil Diamond talk/sing his latest offering as I passed through the lounge whilst Fran was watching American Idol.
Surely his advisors should be telling him that, IMHO, he can no longer sing? It was cringeworthy to say the least – don’t get me wrong, at his height he could ‘cut the mustard’ with anyone – but now?!?!

Pretty amazing Grace - more like pretty public egg on his face!

I never liked him myself although the boss did. I found his voice a bit strident/nerve shredding etc.

A taster link for fans?? click here

I cant help feeling he sounds a bit Telly Savalas.

I thought I would give him the benefit of the doubt,maybe it was just one lousy track, so I followed your link and switched the speakers on - big mistake!!
Never again - I'd rather listen to Cilla Black!! On second thoughts it wasn't that totally unbearable!!

I heard it on the radio the other day... It's not exactly a 'Sweet Caroline' , is it?

Bob Dylans' got away with it for centuries:)

Goes to...(drumroll).....Quickbeam!

And yes, it WAS flippin' awful.

Me too! Bob Dylan is a bit 'Elephant in the room' Ive never liked him.

But at least Neil Diamond has had top stuff like 'Cracklin' Rosie' click here

Amazing Grace May be a bit questionable, although I still like it!
click here I actually think that is quite good.

Sweet Caroline,Forever In Blue Jeans and Love On The Rocks.

Cant beat it!

Not my cup of tea, but no worse than a hundred others.

Blimey! You folks can't have young people around, if you think that's bad.

Snec. I know what you mean. Mind you I think anything after 1954 is rubbish anyway no matter who sings it... Oh heck! Just realised I like Michael Bublé singing anything at all.
