Neil Diamond Rides The Fader

Thanks to the sedentary demands of blogging and the 200-person capacity of New York’s Bitter End, I didn’t make it to last night’s MySpace-sponsored Neil Diamond show. But through current videotape and Flash video technology, I can feel like I was there while half-blindfolded and surrounded by people yelling “WOOOOOO”! Check out the clip of “Cherry Cherry” above–and if you have better vision than I do, you, like the Daily Swarm, may notice that Neil’s guitarist is none other than Matt Sweeney of Chavez and Zwan. Yes, really. He’s “all over” the new Neil Diamond record, too. Hey, this seems like a fine excuse to post the video for “Unreal Is Here,” doesn’t it?

I also like that this is one of the first YouTube search results for “chavez -cesar -hugo”:
