I sometimes despair when I read utter rubbish like this !!
Having seen Neil on several occasions in July, and up very close too, I thought he looked years younger than on previous tours - not just looking well and happy and relaxed, but literally years younger so MAYBE Neil too has succumbed to some help in that direction - you dont need to have actual plastic surgery as such these days and I am positive Neil has had something !!
Anyway plastic surgery today is becoming common place with even kids in their early teens going for it. It is an individual's own choice after all - all of us have the choice to permit ourselves to become grossly overweight and slovenly - to eat sensibly and to
and take charge of our own health is down to us alone and if surgery is on our agenda, whether it be Barry or Neil, well why not ? Who are we to criticise what they elect to do ? Probably it would be more appropriate for us to criticise how ghastly some of us let ourselves become before we throw bricks at other people !!
Neil said on UK TV this summer that too much attention can be directed at image/style/looks which can override the fact as to wwhether any talent is also present. The public and the media all seem to expect this youthful and trendy style to be translated by the established older performers and I am positive Neil is just as conscious of all this as Manilow is - Please note Manilow does still have a great head of hair !!
