Neil Diamond Gives Surprise Performance for Firefighters

Local 47 (Los Angeles, CA) member Neil Diamond gave an unexpected performance for firefighters who battled a blaze near his home in Colorado. The 77-year-old sang “Sweet Caroline” for dozens of firefighters at their command post near Basalt. About 450 people battled the fire that has burned about 20 square miles, destroying three homes. Diamond abruptly retired from touring in January after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
