Neil Diamond married his manager, Katie McNeil on Saturday, Us Weekly reports. The ceremony took place in Los Angeles among family and close friends.

Diamond had announced the engagement in September with a little rhyming post on Twitter: "Good news coming from sunny LA/and you're the first I want to tell/ Katie & I just got engaged/ and I hope you wish us well." He followed the announcement up by posting a photo of McNeil and wrote, "I'd like you to meet Katie. I'm lovestruck. I took this photo in London last month."

This will be the third marriage for the 71-year-old singer, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year. It will be the first for McNeil, who is 42. 

Diamond will be heading out on tour this summer, beginning in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on June 1st.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
