Neil Diamond

You can't just say you love Neil Diamond's Bang years and leave it like that.  To love Neil you have to love it all.  The excesses of his late 70's/80's songs.  The overreaching vocals, his courting of the Adult Contemporary market, the glitter jackets, the sing-along to the hits concerts. A genius performer!
No, those that say he never did anything good after the 60's are just denying their true feeling's for all things Neil.  Admit it.  You love him as much as I do.
That's why Rock Hall voters punched his ticket to Cleveland the first time he was nominated.  Turn on your Heartlight indeed.

P.S.  He wrote "I'm A Believer".  Enough said.
