Neil Diamond initially started out his career as just a song-writer, writing smash hits for the likes of the Monkees in the 60s. He then decided to leave college and started to work with Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich, who were the first to decide to market him as a singer as well as a song writer. Nearly 50 years later and will over a100 million albums sales, Neil Diamond has become one of the most iconic songwriters of all time.
After finding success in the early goings of his career, Diamond would become a household name and top star by the 1970s. His first number one as a solo artist was the song ‘Crackin' Rosie’. He would maintain this success and composed the sound track for the film Jonathan Livingstone Seagull, which would go on to net him a Grammy and a Golden Globe.
Throughout the 1980s Diamond continued finding success with his album sales; he even took a foray into acting. Whilst his performances in The Jazz Singer drew some criticism, the sound track in which he wrote was a great success, selling well over 5 million copies.
As most of his albums were of a pop or rock genre, the 1990s saw Diamond delve into country Music, with the release of Tennessee Moon. Granted his success was not as high as in the 70s and 80s, during this period, but his music was still being heard, and to a younger audience.
Sweet Caroline became a favourite sing a long at sports events like baseball in this period, and with a cover song of ‘Red Red Wine’ by UB40 topping the charts, Neil Diamond still remained in the mind set of thousands. Iconic 90s film Pulp Fiction also featured his track ‘Girl, You’ll be a Woman Soon’.
His live concerts remained as much of a draw as they always had been, with extensive tours constantly selling out. But by the 2000s, he had been somewhat anonymous with his album releases. Teaming up with super producer Rick Ruben, was seen as a shrewd move to help reignite his album sales. This proved to be true as the following albums released with Ruben both did well in the charts. 2011 saw another highlight in the already spectacular career of Diamond when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Releasing an album as recent as 2014, Neil Diamond shows no signs of slowing down. Now in his 70s, he continues to tour regularly, receiving all the recognition a man who has been maintaining a successful music career for five decades deserves.
