Neil Diamond, II

Neil Diamond

Neil Diamond

I wrote last night about our plans to see Neil Diamond at Seattle’s Key Arena tonight. We did, and we’re glad we did, because we got to see a genius. His genius lies not in the music, as good as it sometimes is (and as bad as it also sometimes is), but in his ability to draw in the crowd, take us on a journey, create an intimacy even in a huge arena, make us one. I’m not normally much for being one with thousands, but resistance would have been churlish and ungrateful.

Then again, how can one resist a nice Jewish boy from Brooklyn who made good? (Plus, he attended my mother’s alma mater, Erasmus Hall High School.)
