“The Diamonds” now and then

Thanks Kevin for this link – but it does show my age – wow memories.

Cick on the image to start the videothe diamonds


If you were alive in 1957, and old enough to enjoy Rock and Roll, you will probably remember the group, "The Diamonds" who had just launched their super hit "Little Darlin’ ".
For you that are too young to remember – it was a time when the performers were happy, enjoying themselves, respecting their fans, dressed appropriately and their lyrics could be understood.   They did not feel obligated to scream, eat the microphone, mumble inaudible lyrics or trash the set. 
In 1957, The Diamonds had a hit with "Little Darlin" 47 years later, they were requested to perform at Atlantic City …  This link leads to both performances.  Watch the first one then scroll down for the new one 47 years later.   Tom Hanks father is much better looking than Tom, and even better looking with age. In the linked videos Tom Hank’s father is the lead singer on the left. He still has it! Hope you enjoy.
