VERLAINE SLAMS SWEET CAROLINE CROONER
TELEVISION vocalist TOM VERLAINE has blasted fellow singer NEIL DIAMOND’S ability to carry a tune.
The MARQUEE MOON rocker ranks the veteran singer/songwriter among the top five singers he “can’t bear to hear” – with his own vocals following close behind at number six.
The 56-year-old says, “Neil (Diamond) is a much worse singer than me, and I’m right up there with the worst.
“I’ll tell you who the most underrated singer is: TODD RUNDGREN. He’s astonishing.”
