Neil Diamond Releases New Album, Prepares for 2015 Tour
Neil Diamond, song writer and singer, is currently making the rounds on TV and radio talk shows to get the word out about his newest album, " Melody Road ," and upcoming tour of the United States, Canada and Europe.
If you are younger than 40 years old, you may not be too familiar with Diamond or his music much past "Sweet Caroline," but anyone older than that has heard of, or is a fan of, this Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame artist.
Diamond will be 74 years of age when he begins his 2015 tour in Allentown, Pennsylvania on February 27. From the songs I've heard from "Melody Road," his voice is as strong as ever. There is some of the usual melancholy to his music and lyrics of insights in his life that strike a chord with most of us.
I've been a fan of Neil Diamond since I first heard him sing, around 1974. He and I have grown up together, separately. I'd love to attend what is almost certain to be his final tour, but then again, you never know with this man who so obviously loves to make music.
