neil diamond was on the roof next door


hey hey! this afternoon at work while sitting at my desk all of a sudden i hear the classic song sweet caroline blasting outside – as we all jumped to the window – there’s legendary singer & songwriter neil diamond on the roof of the el capitan theatre with late-night talk show host jimmy kimmel who was decked out in a sequined vest with a white scarf – and serenading the growing crowd below – i’ll have to tune-in tonight to see what all the roof action was about! tomorrow night mr. diamond will be mentoring the final five on american idol – i’m not a huge fan of mr. diamond’s but he has written a number of great songs – a total american music icon! many thanks go out to my buddy aaron (full of conspiracy theories & lively conversation!) at work for snapping the pictures below since i was due at a meeting – and neil diamond on the roof next door was not a good excuse to skip! i love living & working right in hollywood – there’s always something random going on! popbytes over & out for tonight…xxoo!

    Does Neil have a steady girlfriend/lady? I would really love to meet him. We are from the same neighborhood and we just past each other by. Thanks.
