Neil Diamond says last week’s Boston Marathon bombing has inspired him to write a song about the national tragedies that America has experienced recently.

The veteran singer/songwriter says the unnamed song will cover more than just last week’s deadly bombing. “It’s like an infestation, and I’m writing about the general situation, not just about this bombing in Boston, but what we’re going through with all of these tragedies -- shootings and so on and so forth,” Diamond tells Rolling Stone.

I hope its a great as "America"
