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."

Strange that every person in the western world has heard of Neil Diamond and yet most people have not heard of Verlaine. Is it perhaps a touch of the green eyed monster called Jealousy on Mr Verlaine's part of Mr Diamonds undeniable talent as both a singer and songwriter. Mr Diamond's music is the classic songs of the future. The depth of the both the music and in particular the lyrics are the works of a musical and spritual genius.
