Special to The Desert Sun
Forever in Blue Jeans, Babe: Tribute bands don’t really make music — they mimic it. But that doesn’t stop the world’s No. 1 Neil Diamond tribute band, Super Diamond, from being a rip-roaring, campy good time.
Since 1989, “The Surreal Neil” and the rest of the band have inserted rippin’ riffs into classic Diamond ballads for maximum-capacity West Coast crowds. Their redeeming quality is their reverence for Diamond’s creations — and their substantial talent.
