Neil Diamond: A Look Inside A Rather 'Solitary Man'

Louise Criscione, KRLA Beat, 18 June 1966

NEIL DIAMOND is real. And in the record business, that's unusual. In a world of phonies and "yes" men, a real person stands out like a wrong note on a Beatle record. Neil doesn't have long hair (though his side-burns remind one of a very early Elvis) and he doesn't wear wild clothes. Yet, he's cool. Not a hippie cool but a know-what's-happening sort of cool.
