Diamond Is Forever

March 15, 1992

Regarding "Songs Sung Blue . . . Diamond Reminisces," last Sunday's interview by Robert Hilburn:

When will you give Neil Diamond his due? Seventy million albums sold worldwide. Twenty million singles sold. Eight sold-out nights at the Forum this month, 10 in '89 and seven in '83, plus 14 sold-out nights at the Greek in '86, yet Hilburn asks Neil about his (Hilburn's) favorite Neil tunes.

Neil Diamond should be a cover story. Here's a 51-year-old man selling out arenas in cities night after night. His material may not be cutting edge, but the phenomenon of Diamond and his live performances is news.
