Neil Diamond sheds light on Parkinson’s battle

Neil Diamond has revealed he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease five years ago.

But he recently came to terms with having this disease.

During an interview with CBS Sunday morning, the legendary musician said: “I think it’s just been happening for the past few weeks.”

The singer adds, “I don’t like it. But…it’s me, it’s what I have to accept. And I’m ready to do it. And, OK, so it’s the hand that God gave me, and I have to make the most of it, and that’s what I do. I am.”

The 82-year-old also revealed he discovered the positive side of coming to terms with his situation.

“Somehow a calm set in, and the hurricane of my life, and things got very calm, as quiet as this recording studio,” he added. .

“And I like that. I find that I like myself better. I’m easier on people. I’m easier on myself. And the rhythm continues, and it will continue long after I’m gone.”

In 2018 Diamond announced his retirement from live performance but vowed to “stay active in writing, recording and other projects for a long time to come”.
