Interesting facts about Neil Diamond.

- Diamond was 16 when he saw the folk singer perform at Surprise Lake, a Jewish kids camp in upstate New York. Watching Seeger’s show sparked something in him. “And the next thing, I got a guitar when we got back to Brooklyn, started to take lessons and almost immediately began to write songs,” Diamond said in a 1976 interview with Rolling Stone.
- “I wanted to go to medical school,” Diamond told Larry King in 2003. “I actually wanted to be a laboratory biologist. I wanted to study. And I really wanted to find a cure for cancer. My grandmother had died of cancer. And I was always very good at the sciences. And I thought I would go and try and discover the cure for cancer.”
- Diamond wed Katie McNeil, in a small Los Angeles ceremony in 2012 – his third marriage for the singer, who has two daughters from his first marriage to his high-school sweetheart, teacher Jaye Posner, and two sons from his second marriage to production assistant Marcia Murphey.
