Neil Diamond has been one of my favorite singers ever since he started recording. I especially loved the hit SWEET CAROLINE which folks in the piano bar played whenever I came in. It was my song.
After 40 years Neil decided to reveal who Sweet Caroline , the person who inspired the song, really is. Well, dippity-do ! It wasn't a sexy woman he had a fling with or anything of that nature that the song kinda touches on. Are you ready for this ? -Caroline Kennedy who I must add was just a kid at the time.
Neil was just at the United Center in Chicago recently and I must say he's aged very gracefully and his voice is even better I think than before.
But, Mr. Diamond, I must say that I'm diappointed that you revealed who Sweet Caroline is because now I can't say you wrote that song for me. Some secrets are just better kept.
