Following the advice of Paul Shaffer of The Late Show with David Letterman, Brian embarked on a new musical venture…a Neil Diamond tribute band, called “Simply Diamond”. As per Paul Shaffer, “Brian is the best Neil Diamond tribute act out there”. “His voice sounds like the real deal”. “I’ve seen four of the biggest Neil Diamond tribute acts and this guy blows them all away”. Brian made his first appearance on a new AOL internet show called “Latenet with Ray Ellin”. Paul Shaffer did the honors of introducing him on the show. He has also appeared at many clubs in the Tri State NY metro area. Recently he was a guest on the Joey Reynolds radio show, another music legend, who worked with Neil Diamond at Bang Records and who broke many of Neil’s hits on the radio back in the day. After Brian sang live , Joey said, “I can’t tell the difference between Brian and Neil…if I closed my eyes I’d swear that Neil is here with me in the room”.
