    My folks played his music a lot when I was young. Who hasn't tipped too many cans and scary-oak-eed Sweet Caroline?

    Great entertainer. 70 today

    I grew up with his songs and they were catchy for sure.I never thought about going to see him live.Well my friend Archer built his stage for him and toured with Neil. So on the San Francisco date he put me on the guest list .I gotta tell ya that guy has the ability to sing just to you.That's the best way I can discribe it. No many singers has that ability.I was very impressed with his show.Happy Birthday Neil ! All my friends said I was so lame going to a Diamond show,what do they know huh.There is a guy in the Bay Area called super Diamond and he has quite a following. Even Neil came up once to see him and said he loved it.

    WTG, and Happy Birthday Neal.

    For you young pups, "The Jazz Singer" was hugely popular among MOR music fans, and it was a movie w/ a much played, music soundtrack!
