Happy Birthday to the SOLITARY MAN
All the best from one of your fans
Hope it’s filled with BEAUTIFUL NOISES and song
And a few other tunes we can all sing along
And a wish all the fun lasts for hours and hours
And that your lovely wife Katie does BRING YOU FLOWERS
Enjoy your Birthday, and all that it means
Kickback, and relax, FOREVER IN BLUE JEANS
And when evening falls, towards the end of the day
Open a bottle of CRACKLIN’ ROSÉ
Before I go, one thing more, it was nice to say HELLO AGAIN
On your Anniversary Tour
Happy Birthday Neil, and I hope it’s all merry
Good luck, and cheers, and thanks... CHERRY CHERRY…
BORN: 24th JANUARY 1941
This week will see the birthday of music legend Neil Diamond, where he will celebrate his 77th year, and also his 52nd year as a performer, where he will soon embark on the Australian leg of his hugely successful “50th Anniversary World Tour” which began early 2017.
It is remarkable that Neil Diamond is still able to travel the globe and present his fabulous show to his adoring audiences, particularly as many younger artistes and bands have been and gone, and yet Neil Diamond remains a constant in the music landscape.
Age has been kind to Neil Diamond, where he must share the same genes as his dear mother, who will hopefully celebrate her 100th Birthday this year.
Neil Diamond looks in fine fettle, okay, he looks a little rough round the edges, (but so would I at 77), but he has retained his energy and a zest for life, and still enjoys what he does.
I remember reading a quote from Neil, where he stated he will sing for as long as he is able, and perform into his mid-eighties, I think he mentioned 83, I am not sure if that particular age has any specific attachment or significance to it, but it appears that Neil is on course to fulfil that prediction.
Neil Diamond is adored Worldwide, and I am sure I am not alone in wishing him a most happy Birthday, and raise a glass and thank him for all he has given us, his fans, and to the music industry as a whole.
