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.

Love it, Skiff! They sound just the same. You know, when I was a kid my parents only listened to classical music. I thought that's just the way it worked - you got old and started listening to classical. I was scared to death it was going to happen to me! I've long since quit worrying about that. :D

Ha! Yeah, I've always been a fan of classical music and I listen to it quite a bit, but I also really like Duwop, Rock-a-Billy, and Classic Country! I'm not sure how all that fits together but, that me!

Boy that brings back memories. The Diamonds were one of my favorite groups. Yup, I’m that old and it looks like I’m in good company.

Oh, and he isn't Tom Hanks father, or at least he wasn't Tom's Dad. :)
