|The happy couple|
You talk about your May-December weddings. This one is May-December 3 decades later! I shouldn't mock cause I'm a softy when it comes to this man. Recently, smooth crooner Neil Diamond wed his manager, Katie McNeil. More than 29 years her senior, Diamond said "I do" for the third time last Sunday.
I will always have fond memories of Diamond as a special Frenchman sang "Sweet Caroline" to me back when I spent a summer in Paris working as an au pair.
Diamond also made hits for other artists:
-"I'm A Believer" sung by The Monkee
-"The Boat That I Row" sung by Lulu
-"Red Red Wine" sung by UB40
-"Kentucky Woman" sung by Deep Purple
-"You Don't Bring Me Flowers" duet with Barbra Streisand
Neil Diamond is one those people who transcends time and trends. I wouldn't go so far as to say that that teens are lining up to get his concert tickets or enthusiastically passing around bootleg copies of his CD's. But he has a sort of atmospheric way of getting into your head like Barry White does. Yes, weird comparision some might say!
Mazel tov, Neil and Katie. Let's hope that this happy event will continue to inspire Diamond to produce more soulful music.
