We'd like to apologize to everyone who has signed up for our mailing list in the past. You've probably noticed you haven't received any updates in several months. This is because our email list has mysteriously disappeared off of our server. We have no idea how it happened (well, we have an idea but don't want to slander anyone)...but it vanished around the start of 2006! So please sign up again. We're going back to a more old-fashioned sign up until we get this thing figured out, so go here to get on the list!

10/2002 - Super Diamond in NYC
Super Diamond has just returned from playing three great nights at Irving Plaza in NYC. Saturday night's show was especially exciting because the cast from NBC TV's "Ed" was at the show to celebrate star Tom Cavanaugh's birthday. Tom joined the band on stage for "Sweet Caroline" (he even wore one of Matt Diamond's shirts), and was kind enough to take some photos with us after the show. Check out the Celebrities Page for more. Also joining Super Diamond this weekend was San Francisco legend Corey McAbee of the Billy Nayer Show. He performed a couple of songs at the end of the TijuanaStripClub set (Surreal Neil's original band was opening). For more info on Corey and The Billy Nayer Show, check out their Website.

It really happened! Neil Diamond came to see Super Diamond at the House of Blues Hollywood on Saturday Dec. 16, 2000.

If that wasn't enough, Neil came on stage to sing none other than "I Am, I Said.." Super Diamond-style. The audience reaction was ear piercing! What a moment! Thank you Neil, and thank you everyone who was there for that once-in-a-lifetime event. Fans who were there at the 3rd show on Sunday night were treated to a walk-up performance by Saturday Night Live veteran Rob Schneider. Rob did his amazing Elvis impersonation of "Blue Christmas" at the end of "Song Sung Blue" Thank you Rob!
