Diamond happy song offers comfort

Neil Diamond has said he is happy his song Sweet Caroline can provide comfort after the Boston Marathon bombing.

The 1969 track is a staple at Boston Red Sox games, and the New York Yankees, Toronto Raptors and other professional sports teams have played it at games in the days after Monday's deadly blasts, with fans and players singing along.

"There is a lot of comfort that music can offer," Neil said.

"In this particular situation, I'd much rather it not have happened than for Sweet Caroline to become part of it. But it's obviously offering comfort to people and I feel good about that."

Neil, who was speaking at a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in LA, said he intended the song, first released in 1969 and addressed to Caroline Kennedy, to offer solace.

"I wrote it in a hotel in Memphis, Tennessee," he said. "And I think there's a little bit of God in that song. I always have felt that. There's no accounting for what can happen to a song. But this one had something special to it."
