A little birdy tells me that Neil D will be mentioned in the New Yorker next week! That man rocks!

By Jove so he was:

And so we set off in the truck, with the trailer in tow, and headed north, listening to Neil Diamond’s slightly nasal tenor on the stereo. (“He’s bloody brilliant, isn’t he?” O’Shea said.)



But you are too modest as the rest of the article is worth reading too:

Split this one onto its own thread as it's worthy...

Well done again, Dr. O'Shea!

I'm tickled pink that Neil D got his deserved mention - wish it had been more; in fact I wish the article had been about him!

Was driving down the road yester and another legend was playing on the radio; what an absolute treat it was to listen to Roger Whittaker again, actually on the radio for all to enjoy, instead of my stereo, glass of wine in hand, listening to my all-time favorite album 'In Orbit'.

The world needs more Neil's and Roger's; twould be a happier place to live in. I'll make it my standard squid-catching music from this day forth.

:shock:
Have you considered this music may be the reason Archietoothless prefers to remain hidden in the ocean depths?

Sir Steve OBE MBE, out of the gloom and dullness of 20th century western culture came a super hero the likes of which planet Earth had never seen before ! (& he's right here) :notworth: keep your arms out straight & always wear your shreds on the outside !

I never rated Neil Diamond before "Breaking up is hard to do" but each to their own & sadly I lost all my 78's when I left old Durham Town in ship lying rigged & ready in the harbour for Norfolk in an effort to bolster the gene pool & reduce birth defects.

Roger Whittaker could, as I recall, whistle like a lark on Nandralone but my Nan didn't like him as she thought he looked like the rear aspect of a wart hog or Jack Russel (*) while he was warbling.

I paid homage to Oasis :band: few years ago at Wemberrrrrrrrly Wemberrrrrrrly & they were FANDABBYDOZY, studio perfect wicked cool & righteous innit so I'll not hear another word John :wink:
I've got a year on Sir SOS so my theory is that Neil & Roger have styles to haul light traps by & us rock breakers prefer SOAD though I must confess to having a very soft spot for Nancy Sinatra & her "Boots" :oops:

He sat at his computer, typed for a few minutes, then stopped abruptly and ran out of the office.
Come on, was that us? :smile:

That's some article...
