Could this really be true? Associated Press reported that Rick Rubin,producer, is involved in the next N. Diamond CD that is being written while Diamond is on the last leg of his North American tour. Tour of '05 also left him touring and not at home. Dated have been added so Mr. Diamond will be touring past the 1st of the year and away from home on New Years Eve once again. Seems Mr Diamond loves the road and is very good at it. his reviews are excellent and he packs out every where he goes. Has any one read or heard anything about these circumstances? Drop a line here and let's compare notes.

I had not heard that story, but I hope it's true. I love Neil and his music and have been lucky enough to see him in concert a number of times through the years I did find this story on his website: [b] NEIL DIAMOND TO BE HONORED AS 2009 MUSICARES PERSON OF THE YEAR The 19th Annual Gala Benefiting the MusiCares Foundation Will Be Held Feb. 6, 2009, During GRAMMY Week SANTA MONICA, Calif. (Oct. 21, 2008)- GRAMMY-winning recording artist Neil Diamond will be honored as the 2009 MusiCares Person of the Year, it was announced today by Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the MusiCares Foundation and The Recording Academy, and John Branca, Board Chair of the MusiCares Foundation. Proceeds from the annual GRAMMY Week gala dinner and concert honoring Diamond - to be held in Los Angeles on Friday, Feb. 6, 2009, two days prior to the 51st Annual GRAMMY Awards - will provide essential support for MusiCares, which ensures that music people have a place to turn to in times of financial, medical and personal need.[/b]
