I was this close to taking a swig of coffee before I read that headline.

Well we were driving down this dark road, and we were driving pretty fast. And we hit a kid. So we got out, and sure enough, he was dead. So we drove off, and two hours later I wrote "Sweet Caroline."

CSB:

I used to front a band in Minneapolis, and I *never* liked talking to the crowd between songs, so I rarely said anything. One night I was a little more drunk than normal, and decided to throw out this exact line from the SNL skit, thinking it would get some laughs. It was a full room (RIP Uptown Bar), but everyone was completely silent, except for one loud & obviously grossed out "Ugggghhhh".

Never said a word between songs again.

That song was written about Caroline Kennedy when she was 11. He saw her on a magazine cover and was...ahem..."inspired". Ick.

Most people don't know that I'm fueled creatively by my massive hatred of immigrants.

There was a skit on SNL once, it was VH1's "Storytellers" with Neil Diamond (as played by Will Ferrell). The actual VH1 show, and this skit, is about musicians telling the stories behind their biggest hits, and then performing them.

In the SNL skit, the stories behind Diamond's songs were incredibly outrageous, with one of them being that he "once killed a drifter to get an erection." Several other posts in this thread reflect other "stories."
