  1. I also grew up with Neil Diamon’s music. My mother played his records constantly. I liked it. A few years later while in Los Angeles, I met him at an Italian restaurant near UCLA University. He was right next to me. He was barely an inch taller then me. I would not have recognized him if someone did not mention his name. I smiled at him and thanked him for agreeing to come and celebrate my birthday. He laughed and asked if it was really my birthday. I replied that it sure felt like it! He went to his lunch meeting and I enjoyed my meal but could not help thinking that my mother would have loved to be in my shoes…

    1. I have actually, released a few years back l think. ND is my own choice, hence why l am being somewhat selfish and displaying 40 of his best over 4 days. I have seen him in concert several times and l remember seeing him live in London many, many years ago when l was around 15 and standing up and clapping and singing with the rest of the audience 🙂
