Whats the Connection between Neil Diamond and Boston?
I probably missed something along the way, so forgive me please. I thought Neil Diamond was a native New Yorker, Yankees fan?
So whats the history of Sweet Caroline and how did it get connected to Fenway?
Answer: Nothing to do with Diamond - except he wrote and sings the song.
The song got its start at Fenway Park thanks to Amy Tobey, who was the ballpark’s music director from 1998 to 2004. She was responsible for choosing the music to be played between innings and picked Sweet Caroline simply because she had heard it played at other sporting events.

Why was Neil Diamond wearing a jacket with "Keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn" reading on his back?
I was watching the Red Sox-Yankees game when Neil Diamond sang "Sweet Caroline" and being a Dodgers fan I was pleasantly surprised and a little confused when I saw the inscription I mentioned.
Answer: I was born in Brooklyn. Believe me, I've heard the stories. A lot of baseball fan's hearts died the day they became the Los Angeles Dodgers. I guess Diamond was a fan.

why is sweet caroline a notorious Red Sox song if neil diamond was born and raised in NEW YORK?
im a sox fan...and ill be the first one to say bum bum bum at a game...but why neil diamond???
Answer: According to the Boston Globe:
Amy Tobey knows the answer to the ''Sweet Caroline" question.
Tobey began working for the Red Sox through her job at BCN Productions, a film and video communications company, having interned for the Boston Bruins.
Her assignment was to decide what music would be played at the park from 1998 to 2004.
She had noticed ''Sweet Caroline" was used at other sporting events, and she decided to send the sweetness over the Fenway speakers.
The song was picked up by fans, and the more it caught on, the more superstitious Tobey became about playing it.
Tobey would play the song somewhere between the seventh and ninth innings if the team was ahead, depending on whether she felt the team was going to win.
She didn't go by any specific margin of runs, but rather who the opponent was, and her gut instincts.
''I actually considered it like a good luck charm," Tobey says. ''Even if they were just one run [ahead], I might still do it. It was just a feel."
In 2002, when new management took over at the park, they requested that Tobey play the song during the eighth inning of every game.
''They liked it and they just loved the crowd reaction with it and stuff," she says.
Though Tobey says she was nervous the change would be bad luck for the team, its appeal to fans ultimately ruled.
And under the song's spell, the Red Sox last season won their first World Series in 86 years.
It was even included in the recent film ''Fever Pitch," starring Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore, that appropriates scenes from 2004's winning season.
EDIT: I am very suspicious of this link to Caroline Kennedy. While it's a nice romantic notion, Neil Diamond never mentioned this until November 20 last year, 40 years after the song was written and around the time he sang it at caroline's birthday and he scheduled a summer tour that includes Fenway Park. What a coincidence. I also can't match up the words with a song related to a 10 year old.
Maybe it's just me, but I think this is marketing
Neil diamonds the jazz singer better than orginal?
I think its a 1000 times better but I dont like jazz an I think Neil diamond is awesome
Answer: Let me pour you a drink and tell what I think about Neil's "Jazz Singer"...
...it is not really fair to compare a movie made in the 1980's to the very first movie ever to feature synchronized sound. The original version was made in a time well before the structure of narrative film had been codified so naturally later movies have a distinct advantage.
However, the 1952 version is better that Neil's.
And I don't want to leave you weeping like a willow but for all of Neil's talent he is a terrible actor.

Can you write a funny story with these Neil Diamond songs?
1) Love on the rocks.
2) Youre so sweet horseflies keep hangin round your face.
3) Ill come running.
4) Red, red wine.
5) Dont turn around.
6) Youll never be anything but mine.
7) Can anybody hear me?
Special consideration for additional Neil Diamond songs.
Hes got a gazillion of them!
GRRR!!! Cant decide!!
Answer: "Hey buddy, gimme a love onthe rocks, will ya?"
I turned around to see a dirty old man with coal dust on his clothes and trail dust in his beard.
The bartender kept cleaning the glass he was holding and snarled, "Yeah, I'll come running if you show me some cash, Pete."
Apparently this guy had been here before. I sipped my red, red wine and regarded this newcomer. Suddenly he looked my way and I tried to avoid his eye, but he said, No, don't turn around. I can see you're wondering about me. If you'll spot me a drink or two, I'll tell you the story of my Sweet Caroline."
Well, I'm a sucker for a good story, so I agreed.
Seems this guy had a lot of trouble with the ladies--had a good heart, but his mouth kept tripping him up. The story of Caroline started on a September morn. She stepped off the train and walked away with his heart back in 1859. That was the year the flies were so bad, so of course the flies were following everyone around. Well, he thought many more followed Caroline than anyone else, so his best opening line was, "Baby, you're so sweet horseflies keep hangin' round your face."
That earned him a slap in the face, but he kept trying--complimenting her manure brown hair, her blister-red lips, her coyote eyes...I could see where this was headed.
He finally got so desperate that he dropped the compliments and simply said, "Oh, baby, you'll never be anything but mine!"
Sweet Caroline turned on him and landed a fist in his belly, saying, "There, ya creep! That'll turn on yer heartlight!"
That's where the bartender entered the story. He had seen the whole thing and took pity on old Pete, offering him a drink or two to ease the pain.
Turns out what Pete lacked in the romance department, he made up for in the mooching department. In a night's time, he drank the bartender right out of his establishment, the Longfellow Serenade, and never paid him a dime.
After telling me this, old Pete stood up and staggered quickly out of the bar. "Hey!" I said, "What about Caroline? Why are you so dirty? Why does the bartender allow you in here when you don;t pay your tab?"
Old Pete just cackled and said, "I guess I didn't tell you, I'm not much of a story teller either!"
As I sat staring open-mouthed after this freeloader, the bartender laid down a bill in front of me---$42! Well, I guess the old geezer's other talent is guzzling the booze....
Well, maybe I'll go try to find Sweet Caroline....

Is it true that singer Neil Diamond has disowned Dustin Diamond?
Former child star Dustin Diamond is the biological son of popular singer Neil Diamond, although theyve apparently had a falling out. I heard that Neil has cut Dustin out of his will because he thinks that Dustin is a terrible actor, extremely ugly, and an overall embarrassment to the Diamond name. Can anyone confirm these details or provide additional details?
Answer: Neil Diamond is a successful singer and is ashamed that his son Dustin turned out to be such a loser and douche. The guy above is correct that Neil has other sons Jesse and Micah. However, Dustin pushed Neil's buttons so much that Dustin has been the only son that he's actually disowned (so far).
I think that Neil was ready to make up with Dustin in the early 1990s but was so enraged when Dustin started acting in Saved By The Bell: The New Class that he completely wrote Dustin out of his will. He must have thought that Dustin totally sucked on that show.

What do you think of Neil Diamond?
Im 39 years old and I grew up listening to my Fathers albums of Neil Diamond. I took my father to a Neil Diamond concert last night, and I will say it was the best performance I have ever seen. He played all the great hits, and while I watched him I realized... its not his distinctive voice that makes him great. Its that he writes all of his music and when you listen you cant help but hear how he has influenced Music of the 60s 70s. He is really a great songwriter.
Answer: when I was kid my step-father was really into him and I am just a few years younger than you are and we watched the Jazz Singer together it my first time seeing the movie and I loved the movie I thought it was a great story and very inspirational, its been a long time since I have heard any of that but I remember the song "Hello" like it was yesterday good song and yeah hes a good song writer

Why Neil Diamond at the Billboard Awards?
Neil Diamond is quite old now, and its very doubtful that many of the young age group that filled that audience even knew who he was. Look at who were up for the awards, Ke$ha, Beiber, Rhianna, Brittany Spears etc. All of them young enough to be Neils great grandchildren. And the kids in the audience were mostly probably in the same age group according to all the kiddie screams. Its like that award show is for the teenyboppers. Now I could see Neil Diamond on the Grammy award. That award show awards more older refined singers.
Answer: Like Lady oh said, he was receiving the ICON Award and maybe Billboard wanted to remind listeners what music sounds like without having high tech effects to be able to sound good !

Why does my dog love neil diamond so much?
Every time I listen to Neil diamond my dog has to be in my room and he loves it:-)
Answer: Well doesn't your pooch have good taste!
Dogs can take a great interest in music. There are certain tones and repetitive words in songs that dogs respond to and it seems that Neil Diamond's music has that.
Every now and then if I'm in a silly mood, I'll pick up my little dog and have a dance with her. If it's a song she likes, she seems to enjoy herself.
I might try that with some Neil Diamond tonight and see how my hounds react.

If Neil Diamond had any singing lessons how many or approximately how many hours of lessons did he have?
Did Neil Diamond really have any singing lessons, if so who with, what kind of instruction was it and approximately when and how many hours did he have apart from any practice and exercises he may have done on his own?
Answer: I think you'll find it hard to find an answer to your question unless you could find a book written about him. The thing is though, he was a consummate musician and wrote songs and did session work (paid studio playing) for many people besides himself. That musicianship would've given him the knowledge of music that he carried through to his singing. Not everyone can be a great player and have a great voice, but he certainly was one.
