Neil Diamond — who penned and sang hits like “Sweet Caroline” and “Red Red Wine” — crowned his nearly five-decade career with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “This is probably the most fun,” the 71-year-old singer told reporters after the ceremony. “I didn’t have to campaign for it. They wanted me. They opened their arms and took me in, and that makes it all the better.”


The star with Diamond’s name can be found on Vine Street, in front of Los Angeles’s landmark Capital Records Building, a day before the artist launches a series of concerts at the city’s Greek Theater.


“He is one of those people, rare in entertainment, who America loves,” said renowned composer Randy Newman at the ceremony, comparing him to Bing Crosby and Judy Garland.
