Irony is snarking on Neil Diamond's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after a post titled "Cherry Cherry". But the truth is, much as we all detest, loathe, execrate, hate, despise, abhor "Sweet Caroline", he was invited to perform with the Band on Last Waltz**, wasn't he?
** That and "Hot August Night". It is a very good live album. Sure, it's not the freaking "Dark Side of the Moon" - nothing is - but the album has its moments.
