A Few Notes of Neil Diamond’s ‘Holly Holy’ is NOT Enough!

Show day is always exciting to see the trucks roll in, staff running around preparing the stage and the set-up, and hearing the musicians do their sound check for the evening performance. Walking to my office, I heard a few notes of the 1971 classic “Holly Holy!”  It was just a few notes on the guitar, but it got me really excited to hear that song and others from Neil’s more than 50  years of songwriting and performing.  Neil Diamond is one of the best songwriters of all-time! He is the third most successful hit maker on the adult contemporary charts ever! But ‘adult contemporary’ sounds so calm…he is anything but!  After all, he is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! He rocks the stage with his high energy performances and gives 150% every single time! He is a true legend. I’ve had the honor of seeing him perform several times over the years.  REALLY looking forward to tonight’s performance at the Schott!

A few notes were not enough…check out a Neil Diamond live performance of “Holly Holy” from 1971.
