    Loved his music over the years but as it comes to us all eventually it is time to hang up his guitar.

      Sad news.

      I was lucky enough enough to see him live.

      Great, great music.

          I have seen him live twice, What a showman. And regardless of whether I liked him or not, Its still a terrible illness to be diagnosed with. Thanks for the music Neil. Jan.

              It's tragic for anyone to be diagnosed with Parkinson's but when it affects your real passion, it must be a double blow.
              I hope they find a cure and wish Neil well.
              I'm not that familiar with his work, but love Sweet Caroline,Cracklin' Rose,Song Song Blue and America. Loved him in The Jazz singer too.

                Sorry to hear this bad news. I was a fan from my 20s and saw him live in Dublin about 10 years ago - his voice was as good as ever.

                  Parkinson’s is a nightmare for the person living with it, and their family. I’ve always been a big Neil Diamond fan but never got to see him perform. We have seen concerts of his over the years on TV and to be honest he should have hung up his guitar years ago. About the only performer from the 60s who is still worth watching is Tom Jones. The voice is a bit more gravelly, but he still has it. As a Brooklyn born girl I adored Diamond growing up, along with all the other singers and songwriters of that era who were from my home town. Believe it or not, my orthodontist was his cousin! 😁

                  Take care, Helen

                    Take care, Helen

                    Upset my wife greatly to hear the news - she also has PD. Neil was sometimes referred to as the Jewish Elvis Presley - no way, Elvis couldn't match him even on his best day (good as he was).
