If you were alive in 1957, and old enough to enjoy Rock and Roll, you will remember the group, “The Diamonds” who had just launched their super hit “Little Darlin’ “.
For you who 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 the new 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, (who is the Lead Singer of The Diamonds is on the left).
