I think you'll really enjoy this. I never knew that Tom Hanks dad sang with The Diamonds. You can really see the resemblance, especially in the 1st performance. Be sure to watch the 2nd performance by the group 47 years later.

2 Performances 47 years apart
FYI, the lead singer of the Diamonds is also the father of TOM HANKS.

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. I may have posted this before but it's worth another view.

Thanks Vernon. It was nice to see a performance that didn't involve some dork warming up a chainsaw with a pentagram tatoo on his forehead and a chicken stapled to his face.N/T
